Won’t give her the vote?
She’ll use the bombs under skirts
To blow your shit up.
Emmeline Pankhurst, English suffragist, died ninety years ago today. Hobbies included politics, hunger strikes, arson, and long marches on the street. I find myself with mixed feelings about her – did her increasingly violent tactics advance the suffragist movement or set it back? And maybe it’s a little questionable to cut ties with two of your daughters because they had two thoughts about breaking windows and saw World War I as the ridiculous shit show it was? But no one can claim she was wishy-washy.
