Banbury Constituency Labour Party

Helen Pankhurst is Guest Speaker at Banbury & Bicester Labour Party Supper Club

Women’s Rights activist Helen Pankhurst was our guest speaker at a recent Banbury & Bicester CLP supper club (9 June 2018).

She happens to be the great-granddaughter of Emmeline Pankhurst and the granddaughter of Sylvia Pankhurst, leaders of the British Suffragette movement, and continues the fight for Women’s equality.

Her new book, “Deeds not Words – The Story of Women’s Rights, Then and Now” is published by Sceptre, and to quote Helen she discusses “How far women have come since the Suffragettes, how far we still have to go, and how we might get there”.

She told her audience, “I can’t be too late home tonight I am going on the Women’s Procession in London tomorrow”. (An event held in various locations across the UK to mark 100 years since votes for women).
