It is a hard thing to categorically state who would be the most interesting figure in the British womens suffrage movement within this time period as there were many who had great influence on the events of this time The militant actions of the Pankhurst ladies make them an enduring symbol of the movement that lives on in todays memory and immediately spring to mind when the discussion of womens suffrage arises Another is the first suffragette martyr Emily Wilding Davidson who went to the Derby rushed out on to the racecourse grabbed the reins of the Kings horse and tried to stop the race and who died of head injuries from this act This incident also lingers in the public memory long after the event However John Stuart Mill 1806-1873 was an interesting figure in the British suffrage movement in the period between 1866 and 1914 He was born in London on May 20 1806 and was the eldest of son of James Mill He died near Avignon France on the 8th of May 1873 He was influenced by his fathers teachings by the women in his life and events before 1866 influenced the path he took on the road for women to gain the vote Mill although not one of the publicly better known names of the suffrage movement such as the Pankhursts or Emily Davidson made a huge contribution to the early emergence of the movement for womens rights and his membership of parliament and his efforts for womens equality started in motion active petitioning by women for their voice in politics It will be shown in this essay how those who were closest in his life played a large part in moulding him into the person he was and how his fathers views versus the thoughts of the woman he loved gave him a balanced outlook of life and the way things ought to be in a civilised and democratic society
