Emmeline Pankhurst Painting of 1927 by Georgina Brackenbury Verso: Emmeline Pankhurst 1858-1928 Of Lancastrian and Marx liberatiion descent; married a reformer. Invented Militancy; almost perished hunger-striking. Woman Suffrage attained, worked for the Empire; became Canadian State Lecturer of Hygiene; Died Conservative Parliamentary Candidate for Whitechapel. Dignified, modest, graceful, with lovely eyes and exquisite voice, her passionate eloquence was irresistable. Worshipped by women, men bore her terrific onslaughts unresentingly. Accepting service as nothing, she dismissed compromisers unthanked. Fearless, disinterested, always hopeful, like Joan of Arc inexplicable and immortal. Ethyl Smith.
