Emmeline Pankhurst (1858-1928), British political activist and leader of the British suffragette movement. Pankhurst is best known for helping to win the right to vote for women in the UK. She founded the Women's Social and Political Union (WSPU), an all-women suffrage advocacy organisation dedicated to 'deeds, not words'. Although widely criticised for encouraging the group's militant tactics, which included physical confrontations such as smashing windows and assaulting police officers, she is recognised as being instrumental in achieving women's suffrage in Britain. Photographed in 1912.
