Emmeline Pankhurst

I'm currently reading the biography of Emmeline Pankhurst and came across this wonderful photograph of her. She's being arrested after leading a protest to parliament, armed with a rolled resolution for women's suffrage and a few lilies of the valley. What really strikes me about it is, the look on her face, such pride and defiance.
We are here, not because we are law-breakers; we are here in our efforts to become law-makers.
Wonderful, I hope I always look as proud on my way to vote.
