Born 1858, Emmeline Goulden Pankhurst started the Women's Social and Political Union in 1903. The WSPU fought for women's suffrage in England for the next 25 years, sometimes using militant tactics like arson. Pankhurst herself was jailed several times and participated in hunger strikes while in prison. She died a few weeks after British women were granted equal voting rights in 1928.
