Emmeline Pankhurst

Emmeline Pankhurst is without a doubt a woman I admire a lot and I would like to meet her if I'd ever be given a chance. Either by time traveling , there's no such a thing of course or simply by whishing...

She was the leader of the British suffragette movement and created female voting rights that would eventually be given to most European women. Although her parents wanted her to be contempt with getting married , having children and raising a family...

In 1930 there were statue made of her placed in Victoria Tower Garden, London.

I think that Pankhurst must be considered one of history's first real feminists.
