Window Smashing in London

Helen Pankhurst, close friend of The Muriel Matters Society Inc., was recently involved in a re-creation of the window smashing campaign by the early suffragettes. Over a century ago, the Women’s Social and Political Union used window smashing in London, as well as a whole host of other militant tactics, to secure suffrage for the women of Great Britain. Helen, the great granddaughter of Emmeline Pankhurst, has recently published a book on suffrage and women’s rights (Deeds Not Words: The Story of Women’s Rights – Then and Now) and remains involved in current debates.
