Teaser: 'If only you were a boy ...'', her father quietly whispered that evening, believing she was already asleep. Emmeline was then just a little girl, and yet everything became very clear to her. Her intelligence, her accomplishments, her determination would have earned her a fortune ... if only she had not been a woman. However, that was what she was, and her ambition could drive her on to become the wife of a great man; no further, nothing more, only the reflection of someone else's value.
Emmeline had decided she would not bow her head to this subdued fate and ever since then she could feel the call to arms that would mark her existence, devoting herself to this fierce and merciless struggle to dismantle at least some part of the damaging and disgraceful male chauvinist model of society that has been standing for centuries.
Indeed, her whirlwind struck true and continues the barrage on conformist fin-de-siècle England. Together with her husband, elderly attorney Richard Pankhurst, Emmeline is firmly standing out on the political and social scene thanks to her battles for the female vote and for their rights in matters of divorce and estate inheritance. But how far will she go for her ideals ... Or her ambition?
Relations: She's travelling with a personal butler, William Monck, towards whom she shows a certain coldness. She had a close correspondence with Annie Besant, whom she can finally get to know tête à tête. Two servants, Katrina Schneider and Claretta Benvenuti, showed great admiration for her. She is intrigued by Costantino Nigra's personal story. She held an epistolary conversation with Lord Gordon Asherton, the two repeatedly discussed about treatment reserved for women and workers in the factories of enlightened Lord Gordon. Despite their distance of political and social convictions, on several occasions she has meet with Lord Francis Wimsey. At a ball, she was introduced to Katharine Douglas Scott and although she tried to talk to her, she never got the chance.
