Emmeline Pankhurst (15 July 1858 -14 June 1928) was the leader of the British suffragette movement. Opposed to Pankhurst and the concept of women being allowed to vote, were of course most men and most institutions; including the Church of England & British Royal Family. In protest, Pankhurst and other women chained themselves to the railings outside Buckingham Palace. Photo shows her being arrested and taken away by police. She never gave up, and in 1928, women won the right to vote in the UK.
