To make a choice during an election

This statue was put up in memory of Emmeline Pankhurst (1858-1928), the champion of the Womens' Suffrage movement.

Pankhurst campaigned for forty years for full equality for British Women.

From 1906 she directed "The Women's Social and Political Union" from London, leading many campaigns for women's rights, and being jailed for her militant activities - which included disrupting the meetings of various Cabinet Ministers.

In 1913 she was imprisoned for her actions at least 12 times, and during World War I, she stayed in the United States lecturing on the Womens' Suffrage movement.

Emmeline Pankhurst arrested by Superintendent Rolfe outside Buckingham Palace, London, May 1914.

Mrs Pankhurst was trying to present a petition to the king. "The Suffragette" newspaper reported that as she was driven away to Holloway Gaol she called out: 'Arrested at the gates of the Palace. Tell the King!'

Pankhurst was jailed several times during the fight to get women the vote


To make a choice during an election

Pankhurst returned to England in the 1920s and achieved complete success in the year of her death, 1928, when equality of voting for both men and women was established by "The Representation of the People Act" - passed only a few weeks before her death. We women suffragists have a great mission - the greatest mission the world has ever known. It is to free half the human race, and through that freedom to save the rest.
