Mrs. Emmeline Pankhurst (1858-1928). Portrait of Mrs. Pankhurst taken in Boston in October 1910. Emmeline Pankhurst was the Honorary secretary of the WSPU and later Honorary treasurer. Born in Manchester from a radical political background, Emmeline married Dr. Richard Pankhurst, the 'red doctor' a radical feminist barrister. Their daughters were also involved in the WSPU. By 1913, Emmeline had served three prison sentences, two for leading a deputation to Parliament, and for inciting the public to 'rush' the House of Commons, and in the wake of the window smashing of March 1912, she was sentenced to nine months in prison for conspiracy to commit damage.
