Emmeline Pankhurst was one of England's leading women's rights activists in the early twentieth century. Her autobiography offers an enlightening look at issues that remain vital today. Susan Duerden offers a capable and at times engaging narration of this audiobook to the point that she becomes Pankhurst in the mind of the listener. Pankhurst's frustration with the intransigent male-only British government is palpable in Duerden's reading. But so are Pankhurst's joys, including her obvious maternal pride in the political activism of her daughter. Duerden's British accent adds an authentic tone without interfering with comprehension for American listeners. R.C.G. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2015]
