She presented a young female point of view which was active, aware of current issues and independent-minded; she recognised adolescence as a time of transition, and accepted girls as having common interests and concerns which could be shared and acted upon. She was born in Preston, Lancashire in , during the Victorian era. Angela was the youngest of four siblings including sister Amy, and two brothers, Clarence and Walter. Her father Clarence was distant, seldom involved himself in his children's affairs, and saw himself primarily as a provider for the material well-being of the family and responsible for ensuring the children were appropriately schooled in religious tradition. Angela was treated with great affection by her sister Amy from an early age, and Amy effected an immense, perhaps dominating influence on Angela throughout her life. The family moved around the mill towns of south-east Lancashire , following her father's work opportunities.
