Remembering the Suffragette movement

A museum in the former Manchester home of the "Votes- for- Women" campaigner Emmeline Pankhurst is opening this weekend. The charity premiere of a new film called Suffragette takes place in the city tonight.

The film looks at the fight for the right for women to vote in the early 19th and 20th century. Often the campaign - led by political activist Pankhurst, who was from Moss Side in Manchester - involved high profile protest.

Some chained themselves to railings to provoke an arrest. Others smashed windows and set fire to unoccupied buildings. Many suffragettes were imprisoned. Proceeds from the premiere will go towards the Pankhurst Trust. Gail Heath is from the trust.
