Beatrix Potter had the advantages of a wealthy family which enabled travel opportunities, but which restricted her wishes for an independent achieving life, as with many Victorian ladies of her class. Her real scientific abilities were suppressed by male bias and domination and in the end she achieved fame as a much-loved writer of children’s stories. She finally achieved independence and helped the nascent National Trust in her beloved Lake District by purchasing and preserving many sheep farms.
