Psst, wanna know who Emmeline was?
Emmeline Pankhurst was a founding member of a group of women called the Suffragettes, who fought incredibly hard to get women the right to vote in the UK.
They often used violent and extreme tactics to do this, and Emmeline was no stranger to a prison cell because of this.
When World War One broke out, however, she recognised that she should help with the war effort, and she encouraged other Suffragettes to do the same.
While the men were away fighting in the war, many women like Emmeline took on jobs that men would traditionally do. They earned lots of respect doing this and it showed just how much women contributed to society – and, therefore, deserved the vote.
In 1918, a law was passed which allowed certain women the right to vote. This was a big step in equality between men and women – and many would argue that, for a large part of this, we have Emmeline to thank.
