Helen Pankhurst is the great-granddaughter of Emmeline Pankhurst and granddaughter of Sylvia Pankhurst, leaders of the British suffragette movement. In the 100th anniversary year of women getting the vote, we are delighted to welcome her to Church Stretton to talk about her book, ‘Deeds Not Words’. The book charts how women’s lives have changed over the last century, and offers a powerful and positive argument for a new way forward.

Dr Helen Pankhurst is a women’s rights activist and senior advisor to CARE International, based in the UK and in Ethiopia. Her work in Ethiopia includes support to program development across different sectors, focused on the interests and needs of women and girls.

In the UK she is a public speaker and writer on feminist issues. She was involved in the 2015 film, ‘Suffragette’.

“An incredible book… Informative, enlightening, and with the potential to change women’s lives.” Sandi Toksvig

“A valuable guide and reference to anyone who wants to understand the Women’s Movement in more depth.  I am deeply grateful to Helen for writing it!”  Annie Lennox OBE
