Emmeline Pankhurst (1858 - 1928) was a suffragette during a period of history where women and lower class males were not allowed to vote. Seeing something wrong with the world, Pankhurst decided to make a change to give everyone the vote. Through perseverance, determination and political actions, Pankhurst fought in lots of different ways to have everyone’s voice be heard. During the period of the First World War, Pankhurst stopped the Suffragettes from their protests in order to help the country and they took on many of the men’s jobs. In 1918, the vote was granted to women over the age of 30, this was the beginning of a wonderful step to votes for all and the results of Emmeline Pankhurst’s hard work. This influences our class to look at the people today who are making changes for all of our futures and providing a voice for all.
