In 1879, she married a lawyer who had created in England the first women's suffrage bill and the Married Women's Property Acts, Richard Marsden Pankhurst. 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 Politcal Union.

Just this. Honestly, at the end of my life, this is what I want. Everyone else can do the "big things" in the Kingdom...I just want to love one man - my Preacher - this well. (I have a feeling that THAT goal will mean I accomplished something enduring and deeply, deeply Christ-like...love displayed is what brings others into the Kingdom of God.)
