Christabel Pankhurst, Emmeline’s daughter, co-led the Women’s Social and Political Union and was the driving force behind the militant wing of the women’s suffrage movement. A charismatic and powerful orator, with her cry ‘Rise up women!’, she mobilised thousands of women to become suffragettes and demand their democratic citizenship rights. This major new biography reveals an unrivalled range of previously unpublished research.
