(1882-1960) was a prominent suffragist
and anti-fascist activist. She was the daughter of another very important figure
in women’s rights, Emmeline Pankhurst.

She was an accomplished artist and designed
the logos, banners and posters of the Women’s Social and Political Union. Her
protests and militant tactics in support of women’s rights got her arrested
eight times. She later moved to Ethiopia, where she founded the country’s first
teaching hospital and wrote extensively on its culture.
