The Suffragette leader Annie Kenney on a deputation to Herbert Asquith with Mrs Knight and Mrs Sparborough, 19 June 1906.
Annie Kenney was the only working class woman to become a senior leader of the Women's Social and Political Union. Born in Lees near Oldham, she was originally a mill worker. Along with Christabel Pankhurst, Kenney committed the first militant suffragette act at the Free Trade Hall in Manchester in October 1905. She moved to London with Emmeline and Christabel Pankhurst in 1906 and became a paid organiser for the WSPU. Kenney was utterly loyal to the Pankhursts, becoming deputy leader of the WSPU when Christabel fled to France in 1912. She served four prison sentences for her suffragette activities. Kenney's three sisters and brother were also committed to the suffragette campaign.
