Emmeline Pankhurst was born in Manchester, England on July 14, 1858. In 1879, she married a lawyer, Richard Marsden Pankhurst, who had created the first women's suffrage bill in England and the Married Women's Property Acts. In 1889, Emmeline created the Women's Franchise League which, in 1894, gave married women the right to vote not in the House of Commons, but in local office elections. Then, in 1903, she established WSPU, the Women's Social and Political Union.

EMMELINE PANKHURST (1858-1928)Destacada activista y una de las fundadoras del movimiento sufragista británico. Se casó con el abogado Richard Marsden Pankhurst. Su marido ya apoyaba anteriormente el movimiento de las sufragistas. Falleció tras haber obtenido el mayor de sus objetivos: el derecho al voto femenino en el Reino Unido. Lo que más me ha gustado de ella es que ha defendido a capa y espada en lo que ella creía que era lo justo.
