Short biography
In 1885, "Maud" Robison married journalist and politician William Pember Reeves; the couple had three children and moved to London. She became active in the socialist and suffragette movements. She moved in left-wing intellectual circles that included George Bernard Shaw, H. G. Wells, and Sidney and Beatrice Webb. In 1913, she published a highly influential survey of poverty and infant mortality in Lambeth, a poor section of South London, with Charlotte Wilson, called Round About a Pound a Week, that is still considered relevant today.
