BISAC: SOC028000

In 1903, Emmeline Pankhurst founded the Women’s Social and Political Union, a militant organization dedicated to achieving women’s suffrage. Its radical approach, consisting of stone-throwing, window-breaking, arson, and physical confrontation with authorities. The History of the Women’s Suffrage was written at a time when it was in the very forefront of British politics and offers an insider’s perspective on the motives and ideals that inspired its leaders and followers.

When the long struggle for the enfranchisement of women is over, those who read the history of the movement will wonder at the blindness that led the Government of the day to obstinately resist so simple and obvious a measure of justice. A passionate love of freedom, a strong desire to do social service and an intense sympathy for the unfortunate, together, made the movement possible.
