About us:

62 Nelson Street was the home of Emmeline Pankhurst and her family and was the place where the first meeting of the Women’s Social and Political Union – the movement which became known as the Suffrages – took place. Saved from demolition by a grassroots campaign in the 1970s and 1980s, the Pankhurst Centre is now the only heritage site in the U.K. dedicated to telling the story of the Pankhurst family and the story of women’s fight for the right to vote.

  • Courageous by challenging inequality, stepping forward and making change
  • Affirming by supporting and inspiring, paying attention to discover what matters
