Waxing lyrical... Pankhurst is back
Tussauds marks Women’s Day
WITH a steely glint in her eye and a finger pointing skywards, it’s clear that you can’t keep a good revolutionary down.
And 120 years after co-founding the Women’s Social and Political Union to win women the right to vote, Emmeline Pankhurst is back in the public eye at Madame Tussauds, London.
It unveiled a new waxwork of the suffragette in full speech mode yesterday before International Women’s Day tomorrow, when tourists can see it. Venue boss Tim Waters said: ‘We are remembering a revolutionary female voice of the past that helped shape modern culture.’
