My Own Story is Emmeline Pankhurst’s suffragette experience. Yet Mrs Pankhurst wrote this book in 1914, so I always knew the story would be half finished

My Own Story is Emmeline Pankhurst’s suffragette experience. Penned from her own endeavors to secure the vote for women, we follow Emmeline through significant moments in history as she pushes the cause further towards a hopeful resolution and recognition. The most poignant element of this book is that it’s a recent history of women. Yet Mrs Pankhurst wrote this book in 1914, so I always knew the story would be half finished. I wanted to see through her own eyes the impact of the first world war on the suffrage cause, and hear her own reaction to finally achieving the vote.

Bought this for my daughter's school assignment, was helping her to take notes and found I cannot put it down- a fascinating person. My kid on the other hand has a hard time, because it isn't really written for a 7th grader with a learning disability( hence my helping), but when you have a report on a person and they write an autobiography, of course you have to have it in your references. I on the other hand, have a lovely happenstance of a book I intend to finish and read for enjoyment.

An interesting insight into the development of women's Suffrage in the UK. Unfortunately the attitudes of the time are still widespread worldwide and can even be found in some sectors of society in the developed world. The style of writing is a bit dated but the message is still relevant today.

I learned a great deal from this book, and it really made me more aware of the great debt I owe those who came before me. I love to vote, and wish everyone did. It is shameful how many women...and men...dhoose to not vote.

I never expected to get the actual manuscript, corrections,remarks and all, when I bought this book. It's a copy of the original manuscript, warts and all. It's really good reading. Gives a true insight as to what she had to actually go through to help get women the vote.
