The leader of the militant movement for women's suffrage, in 1903 Emmeline Pankhurst founded the Women's Social and Political Union with her daughter Christabel. Imprisoned for militant action on numerous occasions between 1908-1914, she was released after hunger-striking. During the First World War she observed the militants' truce and took little part in the campaigns leading to the first instalment of women's suffrage in 1918. Given by a Memorial Committee, 1929.
