    eBook franzbielmeier.de ↠ My Own Story PDF Þ My Own Epub / story free, My Own book, My Own Story MOBINothing to celebrate ?I'd be lying if I claimed to be a fan of Madame Pankhurst and her gang but given the centenary of the Representation of the Peoples Act 1918 and the fact that a steeply discounted copy of her book flaunted itself wantonly before my eyes for a mere fifty pence I willingly undertook to see how self serving her memoir was I found it a hugely entertaining and worthwhile read although towards the end the lengthy accounts of trials for all their rhetorical sparkle was a little wearisomeIt is a memoir written in 1914 after the outbreak of war in Europe for an American audience in order to raise funds for the cause on the up side this means that Pankhurst explains aspects of the British political system and the history of the movement for women's suffrage which may well be obscure not only to the American of 1914 but also to the contemporary reader curiously at that period if a MP was appointed

    eBook franzbielmeier.de ↠ My Own Story PDF Þ My Own Epub / story free, My Own book, My Own Story MOBIThank god we have people like Emmeline Pankhurst that existed in the world What an inspiring and true pioneer of her generation so dedicated to the suffrage cause and paving the way for future generations of women Incredible story of perseverance of ardent passion and how a group of committed women incited others to gather together with a single minded purpose This is an important history lesson that should be compulsory lear

    eBook franzbielmeier.de ↠ My Own Story PDF Þ My Own Epub / story free, My Own book, My Own Story MOBIVery surprised to enjoy this so much I thought I knew all I wanted to about Emmeline Pankhurst She was probably the first name I learnt in connection with the suffragette movement and arguably the most well known figure In recent years I've learned about her life that I didn't like such as her dismissal of the Pethick Lawrences disownment of her two younger daughters her activism in WW1 and some of her militant tactics So what else was there to find out? uite a lot actually Aside from being an interesting autobiography about her suffragette work it was a very in depth yet easily understood account of government leaders legislation and their inner workings Totally infuriating to read about the sexist misogynistic attitudes now but amazing to realise just how much

    eBook franzbielmeier.de ↠ My Own Story PDF Þ My Own Epub / story free, My Own book, My Own Story MOBIMost people have heard of Emmeline Pankhurst and her campaign for women's suffrage up to 1914 In this book she gives us her view of it and the reasons for the growing militancy in the WSPU she founded She wanted representation on the same terms as men in national elections which is only fairThe UK electoral franchise before the Great War was very unfair Only a minority of wealthier men could vote The Liberal Party when in power introduced three Representation of the Peo

    eBook franzbielmeier.de ↠ My Own Story PDF Þ My Own Epub / story free, My Own book, My Own Story MOBIThe writing itself was somewhat detached almost of a daily log than a real autobiography But that did not detract from the bravery and dedication of the suffragettes and their allies nor from the frustrating sexism and misogyny they dealt with daily I also loved this book because it makes you think about where to draw the line when fighting for one's rights Is there even a line? Where does protest become revolution? Or insurrection? Luckily a lot has changed in just 100 years enough that reading about the political reality of women at that time seems almost unbelievable But there are some incredible parallels to our modern times that cannot be ignored Specifically Mrs Pankhurst's often repeated statement that to truly fight for change you have to hit them where it hurts namely property That targeting mailboxes and golf courses can do far than al

    eBook franzbielmeier.de ↠ My Own Story PDF Þ My Own Epub / story free, My Own book, My Own Story MOBIThe most powerful aspect of My Own Story part autobiography part history part justification of militancy is that it was written before the battle for women's votes was won The effect is that the reader comes close to feeling like an real time participant in the escalating battle between the WSPU and the government Pankhurst doesn't necessarily come off as likeable or at times even reasonable but there is no doubting her courage and the courage of countless other women Although I remain unconvinced by Pankhurst's tactics this book succeeded in making me understand why so many women believed them necessary

    eBook franzbielmeier.de ↠ My Own Story PDF Þ My Own Epub / story free, My Own book, My Own Story MOBIWell worth reading The way the establishment fought against women's voting rights is scary and it wasn't that long ago They also unsurprisingly manipulated the press and reneged on promises Films like Suffragette only show the half of itThat said this is Emmeline's versions of events worth reading are the books by Jill Liddington Rebel Girls and One Hand Tied Behind Us which give a much broader view Noteworthy omissions in Mrs P's book include her estranged daughter Adela who was shipped off to Australia
