My Own Story

Inspiration for the major motion picture Suffragette

Emmeline Pankhurst

Don't miss Meryl Streep as Emmeline Pankhurst in the major motion picture Suffragette.

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.
