Christabel Pankhurst: 1880-1958; Christabel (daughter of Emmeline Pankhurst) advocated the use of militant tactics to win the vote for women in England. Pankhurst, with Annie Kenney, unfurled a banner reading "Votes for Women" at a Liberal Party meeting in 1905. Her action received world-wide attention after they were thrown out of the meeting. The two were arrested and sent to prison. Christabel then directed a campaign that included physical action, hunger strikes, and huge rallies.
