Nancy Witcher Astor (née Langhorne), Viscountess Astor, CH, (19 May 1879 – 2 May 1964) was the first woman to sit as a Member of Parliament (MP) in the British House of Commons. (Constance Markiewicz was the first woman elected to the House of Commons in December 1918 after running for the Sinn Féin party in 1918 General Election, but in line with Sinn Féin's abstentionist policy she did not take her seat. Markiewicz was also detained in Holloway Prison at the time.) Nancy Astor represented the Conservative Party and was the wife of Waldorf Astor, 2nd Viscount Astor.
