Emmeline Pankhurst (1858-1928) grew up on a diet of activism. Both her parents were political animals. Pankhurst first began to notice disparities between the sexes, when she saw that her education was not considered as important as that of her brother. She attended her first Suffrage meeting with her mother aged 14, and so began her lifelong career as a political and social activist. A self-professed ‘hooligan’, Pankhurst was arrested many times, all in the name of gaining the vote for women in England. Here is Pankhurst with fellow Suffragettes, Christabel, her daughter, and Flora Drummond (1878-1949), at her ‘First Conspiracy Trial’. They look decidedly bored with proceedings.
