Book DescriptionEmmeline Pankhurst was one of the most fascinating and controversial women in British political history of the 20th century. Notorious for her militant actions, she fought for women's suffrage, later worked for the war effort and was transformed into a popular heroine. This new biography traces Pankhurst's development from her familial and friendship circle, through her married and working life, her engagement as a suffragette and increasing militancy. Paula Bartley uses new archival material to assess whether Pankhurst should be seen as a heroine or a tyrant, a conservative or a progressive.
