Purple ostrich feather from a hat worn by the Suffragette leader Emmeline Pankhurst. The hat was worn by Emmeline at various campaign events including the Suffragette deputation to the House of Commons in June 1909 and whilst campaigning at Redcar during the Cleveland by-election in July 1909. The information with regards Emmeline's association with the feather is on a label handwritten by a Suffragette prior to it being acquired by the Museum in 1950.
