To mark Women’s History Month, LSE PAGE will be looking at the life and activism of four different suffrage campaigners from our Women’s Library. This blog series consists of four posts which will be shared throughout the month.
While Houghton Street has been home to LSE since the early 1900s, this corner of the Strand was also where Emmeline Pankhurst’s Women’s Social & Political Union (WSPU) had its central offices.
Originally operating out of the residential flat of Emmeline Pethick-Lawrence in Clement’s Inn in 1906, the WSPU took on more space at the Inn as the movement grew. When a split occurred between Pankhurst and Pethwick-Lawrence, the WSPU moved – but only round the corner to Lincoln’s Inn House.
Find out more about the Suffragettes and their base at Clement’s Inn.
