This is the incredible story, not only of Mrs Emmeline Pankhurst, but of the Suffragettes and the women's movement. Reading this book overwhelmed me with emotion. I felt indignation, anger and frustration at the politicians that, over and over, refused to end woman suffrage. Words cannot express how grateful I am that all of these women existed, and gave me the opportunity to vote.

I learned a little about the Suffragettes in school, mainly Miss Davison, who threw herself in front of the King's horse at Epsom, and of the forcible feeding, though history lessons in school don't tell of the true horror these women experienced at the hands of prison doctors during this forced feeding.

Even so, a lot of what we learn about Suffragettes today seems to be clouded by the then government's portrayal of these women, though the truth is an utterly different story. This book contains the story from the Suffragette leader. It details everything she did, everything she ordered, everything the other women organised and carried out even without her doing.

The women, not all of whom can be documented in this book, are true heroes. I owe my rights, as a woman, to them. Because they fought for us all.

This book has made me feel empowered, and renewed my energy to continue on their fight.

As an 81 year old Manchester man, I have been aware of the Pankhurst's and how Women had to fight for their right to vote. This book does not only highlights the Pankhurst family, but also stalwarts such as, Annie Kenny,Mrs. Drummond,and many more.
It also shows some of the so called "Great Men " in their true colours, men such as Churchill, Asquith, Lloyd George, Baldwin, men who spoke well, but did very little during those terrible years. For ALL the people who did not vote at the last election, read this, and be ashamed.
