Description - The Pankhursts by Martin Pugh

A re-issue of Martin Pugh's comprehensive and compelling biography of the Pankhurst family, an extraordinary family whose work for the rights of women challenged the very heart of the polticial and social establishment

The suffragettes outraged Victorian society, yet behind the protests, arrests and hunger strikes, the personal lives of Emmeline Pankhurst and her daughters were just as dramatic. Martin Pugh reveals the full story of this unique family- Emmeline, the domineering mother; Christabel, the favourite daughter who became an Adventist and admirer of Mussolini; Sylvia, the 'scarlet woman'; and Adela, banished to Australia after a bitter rift. It is an astonishing account of the triumphs and tragedies of four extraordinary women.
