Emmeline Pankhurst - Suffragette (My Own Story) (2nd Hand Paperback)
Emmeline Pankhurst recounts her own tale in 300 pages of staunch, sobering prose.
First published in 1914, it’s an accessible if not intimate view into the psyche of the best-known suffragette in history. This latest reprint (2015) is fronted by a pensive Carey Mulligan, who stars in the 2015 film Suffragette, inspired by this autobiography.
Pankhurst starts from the beginning. She writes early on of her frustration at her brothers’ education being valued more than her own, and her father’s wish that she was born a boy. The account stretches up to 1914, still four years short of suffrage for women, as she covers such ordeals as force feeding passionately yet plainly.
“Had I remained there much longer, I should have been a dead woman,” she says of one stint in prison in 1913.
The finished product rests somewhere between a gripping novel and a painstaking historical record. No view of the suffragette story is complete without this comprehensive puzzle piece.
