Emmeline Pankhurst was the most well known of the activists striving for the right for women to vote in the early twentieth century. This book is her story. It was first published in 1914 at the start of the First World War and before women received enfranchisement. In the text Mrs Pankhurst describes her path to radical politics and her life as leader of the suffragette movement. She does not hold back on her descriptions of the violent tactics employed or indeed the savage treatment of the women by the authorities. The accounts of the often sadistic cruelty of the British Establishment towards these women are not easy to forget. The book contains the sixteen photographs from the original 1914 publication with three additional images from Mrs Pankhurst’s visit to the USA. The text has been annotated by the publisher with short footnotes giving explanations of terms and descriptions of the people mentioned. The publisher is pleased to be able to include an introduction and a timeline written by Lesley Gray that provide an overview of the struggle for women to obtain the vote and of Mrs Pankhurst’s role in the suffragette movement.

About the Author:

Emmeline Pankhurst (née Goulden; 15 July 1858 (Chambers Biographical states 1857) – 14 June 1928) was a British political activist and leader of the British suffragette movement who helped women win the right to vote. In 1999 Time named Pankhurst as one of the 100 Most Important People of the 20th Century, stating: "she shaped an idea of women for our time; she shook society into a new pattern from which there could be no going back." She was widely criticized for her militant tactics, and historians disagree about their effectiveness, but her work is recognized as a crucial element in achieving women's suffrage in Britain.

Review:

"She shaped an idea of women for our time; she shook society into a new pattern from which there could be no going back" * Time * "She put body and soul at the service of liberty, equality and fraternity and secured a triumph for them" -- Rebecca West "Emmeline Pankhurst fought for women's suffrage with indomitable courage" * Guardian * "She shaped an idea of women for our time; she shook society into a new pattern from which there could be no going back" * Time * "She put body and soul at the service of liberty, equality and fraternity and secured a triumph for them" -- Rebecca West
