Which Pankhurst Are You? A quiz and another competition

Which Pankhurst are you? That’s the theme of my lighthearted, just-for-fun quiz over at Madame Guillotine today, in which I try to imagine Emmeline Pankhurst and her three daughters in the context of modern political activism, and relate their personalities and approaches to the internet generation. According to my own results, I’m most like the youngest daughter Adela:

Adela Pankhurst

Adela Pankhurst c. 1909 in the Blaythwayt arboretum, where suffragettes who had endured prison sentences planted trees to commemorate their experiences.

The Right of the Subjects

The Right of the Subjects is out now and available for purchase as a paperback from Amazon and on Kindle. Copies signed in purple and green (purple, white and green being the official WSPU colours) are up for grabs on Goodreads and For Books’ Sake, and the latter has a great review up too!

The Women’s Suffrage movement is a complex subject, and rather under-explored in fiction. It is to Jude Starling’s credit that she manages to cover so many significant events, and to depict real-life figures alongside fictional characters, without losing pace.
