women's day

Today I want to remember Emmeline Pankurst, the first activiste for women's movement rights.
In 1914 she found the Sufragettes' movement for women's liberation. At the time women couldn't vote and left school very early. bounded in housekeeping and childcare.
After ten years women obtained eventually the right to vote and so many things changed in their lives above all for the fact that couldn'be ignored what women had done during the First World War, replacing the men in the factories, in the farms and all over the Country needed people to work.
Nowdays more than  60% of women get a work in Great Britain and not only in shops and as housemaids like it was before.
Obviously there is still much to do for their complete integration in the society.
