Emmeline Pankhurst was raised in a world that valued men over
women. At fourteen she attended her first suffrage meeting and
returned home a confirmed suffragist. Throughout her career she
endured humiliation, prison, hunger strikes and the repeated
frustration of her aims by men in power but she rose to become the
guiding light of the Suffragette movement. This is Pankhurst’s
story, in her own words, of her struggle for equality.
