The Suffragettes

The Women's Social and Political Union - the Suffragettes. Was formed in 1903 and led by Emmeline Pankhurst. Although this group was also middle class, it heckled politicians, held marches, members chained themselves to railings, attacked policemen, broke windows, slashed paintings, set fire to buildings, threw bombs and went on hunger strike when they were sent to prison.

 

The most famous women's rights movement were the Suffragettes. A group of women that protested for equality between men and women in the early 20th century. The most famous member was Emily Davison. In 1913, at a crowded horse race, she ran out into the path of oncoming horses in her protest for equality.
