Thousands of supporters were attracted to the processions and demonstrations organised in
the name of female suffrage, but the government remained firmly opposed. From 1912, Christabel Pankhurst and her mother Emmeline advocated a more aggressive militant campaign. This photograph was taken in France, where Pankhurst was living to evade re-arrest, and from where she directed WSPU activity. She is holding a copy of the WSPU newspaper she founded and edited: The Suffragette.
