Feminist pioneer: Emmeline Pankhurst

Save us from cheap and cheerless brand of feminism, Emmeline Pankhurst 

Dear Mrs Pankhurst, I wanted to drop you a line to bring you up to speed with how that women's rights project of yours was getting along. Good news! Just this week, in fact, a major stride forward. Two of our political leaders, the Deputy Prime Minister and the Leader of the Opposition no less, were featured in a women's magazine, photographed in T-shirts with slogans promoting gender equality.
