More activists today:Emmeline Pankhurst (July 14, 1858 - 1928) fought for years as a Suffragette for the simple right to vote to be extended to women as well… For her actions she was frequently arrested, tried and imprisoned…
Emmeline Pankhurst (1858-1928) Pankhurst’s slogan 'Deeds, not words' defined her life. We wouldn't have got the right to vote without her.
Emmeline Pankhurst’s slogan 'Deeds, not words' defined her life. We would have got the vote without her, but her bravery and radicalism shocked society into a new pattern that could not be reversed. She and her daughters were jailed repeatedly, and even then they staged hunger strikes to secure better conditions. In 1918 the Representation of the People Act granted votes to women over the age of 30.

Pankhurst and her daughters were jailed repeatedly – and even then they staged hunger strikes to secure better conditions. When war broke out, they encouraged women to support the common cause and work in industrial production.
For Lady Sybil admirers here is a photograph of Emmeline Pankhurst that was printed in The Observer newspaper a few days ago.The article is about the 10 best female pioneers who have gone down in history for courageous and monumental leadership. How many young women today understand that one hundred years ago women could not vote and what that meant? In fact we had very few rights at all. Emmeline Pankhurst was a powerful voice as she led the way during the suffragette movement in England.

Woman must have her freedom, the fundamental freedom of choosing whether or not she will be a mother and how many children she will have. Regardless of what man’s attitude may be, that problem is hers — and before it can be his, it is hers alone. She goes through the vale of death alone, each time a babe is born. As it is the right neither of man nor the state to coerce her into this ordeal, so it is her right to decide whether she will endure it. -Margaret Sanger 1879-1966

Planned Parenthood Founder on Abortion: ‘No Matter How Early...It Was Taking Life’. She believed that the "unfit" should not be allowed to breed and encouraged sterilization, but she did support the sanctity of all human life. She didn't seem to think badly of those who were "unfit" to have children, just didn't think it right to have children who would be a burden on society.
How should history view Margaret Sanger; as the progressive driving force behind planned parenthood and women's rights, or a bigoted woman who believed in the Eugenics movement that believed that blacks and other undesirables should not be allowed to breed so that we could purify the species?

Feminist.org - The name Feminist Majority Foundation is a consciousness-raiser, inspired by a Newsweek/Gallup public opinion poll that showed the majority of women (56%) in the United States self-identified as feminists. Most polls since then reveal that this majority continues with over two-thirds of young women self-identifying as feminists. Most men, especially young men, view themselves as supporters of the women's rights movement.

Gabby Giffords official announcement that she is stepping down from her position in Congress. She states she will be back!
I don't know that I agree with her down the line politically (mostly, though), but what I really admire about her is her character and courage. I hope your recovery goes well, Congresswoman Giffords.
Gabrielle Giffords announces she is stepping down. Even though we knew this day could come it made me quite sad. Gabby will be fine, and she'll hit great strides on her recovery, but i'm not as confident about the 8th district.
Gabby Giffords - before she got shot, I didn't know who she was. Since she got shot, she has been an incredible inspiration to anyone who has ever been saddled by tragedy and injury.
Glad to see her recovering. Why is there so much hate in this world? Why does it seem that more and more people have a lack of empathy?
I truly admire the positive way in which she has recovered from tragedy. What a beautiful spirit and gentle soul.
Another great source of inspiration! What a fighting spirit! Gabby Giffords =a very brave woman
Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords. An inspiration everywhere.
