This International Women’s Day, we’re celebrating a Manchester born and celebrated Women’s rights activist, Emmeline Pankhurst. International Women’s Day is a great opportunity to celebrate the achievements of women and fight for gender equality. The International Women’s Day aims this year are ‘Celebrate women's achievement. Raise awareness against bias. Take action for equality.’ We’re so pleased to have Emmeline Pankhurst as part of our collection this year, as requested by our customers, and wanted to take this opportunity to delve into history and highlight some iconic Pankhurst moments. Happy International Women's Day!
Looking back at the suffragette movement, it starts with Pankhurst, and our Machester. She was born in Moss Side,, and founded the Women’s Franchise League with her two daughters, becoming a key and important activist for Women’s rights to the vote. This has us thinking about other female icons, and the wealth of changemaking women worldwide. We hope you celebrate some with us this IWD!
