This documentary relays the history of the suffragettes, the preeminent women's rights group to arise in late 19th century Great Britain. At the center of it all stood Emmeline Pankhurst, who traveled to inordinate lengths to secure enfranchisement for British women and landed in prison on more than a handful of occasions. Using Pankhurst as a focal point, the program explores the movement's comprehensive history, concluding with the pivotal year of 1928, in which Pankhurst died - and English women finally attained voting rights. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
