The great leader of the women’s suffrage movement tells the story of her fight for equality

Don't miss Meryl Streep as Emmeline Pankhurst in the major motion picture Suffragette.
Emmeline Pankhurst was raised in a world that valued men over women. At fourteen she attended her first suffrage meeting and returned home a confirmed suffragist. Throughout her career she endured humiliation, prison, hunger strikes and the repeated frustration of her aims by men in power but she rose to become the guiding light of the Suffragette movement. This is Pankhurst’s story, in her own words, of her struggle for equality.
