You can become a Friend by donating at a level that suits you and we will use your gift wherever the need is greatest. In thanks for your support, you will become a member of The Pankhurst community and receive regular newsletters and invitations to special events.

Help to preserve the birthplace of the Suffragette movement

'The Pankhurst Centre stands at 60-62 Nelson Street as a permanent reminder of the Suffragette movement. It is where Emmeline Pankhurst and her family lived and formed the WSPU, the Women's Social and Political Union. It is a fitting place to remember and honour them, to continue to tell their story. Though the story of one family, my family, it is also the story of all women, of how hard the path to gender equality has been, and how much more there is still to do. I hope that you will support us and preserve the feminist heritage.'

- Dr Helen Pankhurst, Great-granddaughter of Emmeline Pankhurst
