Read full description of the books Pankhurst:In just over 150 pages, 'Pankhurst' provides a concise biography of Emmeline Pankhurst, her daughters, and the suffrage movement that became the controversial pressure group in Britain in the early years of the twentieth century that campaigned for votes for women.
The Women's Social and Political Union, born in Manchester, was founded and driven by Emmeline. The suffragette movement also involved husband Richard and daughters Christabel, Adela and Sylvia.
These middle class ladies initiated and directed the fight for 'Votes for Women', begun in 1903, which resulted in civil actions that rocked the political establishment of the day, women chaining themselves to railings, sabotage of Historic houses and churches, smashing windows, setting fire to letter boxes, imprisonment, hunger strikes, damage to paintings and telegraph poles along with the famous death of Emily Davidson at the Epson Derby. Girls not to be messed with!
The Pankhurst girls were primarily responsible for obtaining votes for some women in 1918. In Europe, Finland, Norway, Iceland, Denmark and the Soviet Union gave women the vote before Britain. The gold medal was won by New Zealand.
