The inspiration for the award-winning film Suffragette, this is the story of a women who dedicated her life to advancing the cause of women's rights, in her own words. Emmeline Pankhurst grew up all too aware of the prevailing attitude of her day: that men were considered superior to women. When she was just fourteen she attended her first suffrage meeting, and returned home a confirmed suffragist. Throughout the course of her career she endured humiliation, prison, hunger strikes and the repeated frustration of her aims by men in power, but she rose to become a guiding light of the Suffragette movement. This is the story, in Pankhurst's own words, of her struggle for equality. 100 YEARS, 100 BOOKS: READ OUR SUFFRAGETTE BLOG.
