Equality for all. Kids that are in orphanages rarely get adopted and it's harder for them to get a family and home the older they get since most couples want babies, not older children. What's the difference if it's a gay or lesbian or straight couple trying to adopt kids into LOVING homes? Just ask a kid who's never had a family if it matters to them.
c. 1991: Tony Benn’s plaque to Emily Wilding Davison, placed in the Chapel of St Mary Undercroft (Houses of Parliament). Benn said in 2001: “I have put up several plaques—illegally, without permission; I screwed them up myself. One was in the broom cupboard to commemorate Emily Wilding Davison... If one walks around this place, one sees statues of people, not one of whom believed in democracy, votes for women or anything else..."
Emmeline Pankhurst (born Goulden; 15 July 1858 – 14 June 1928) was a British political activist and leader of the British suffragette movement who helped women win the right to vote. In 1999 Time named Pankhurst as one of the 100 Most Important People of the 20th Century, stating: "she shaped an idea of women for our time; she shook society into a new pattern from which there could be no going back."
In 1897 small groups of women joined forces to form the National Union of Women's Suffrage Societies. (NUWSS) led by Millicent Garrett Fawcett who maintained that peaceful protests were the only way to achieve equal rights for women. Millicent strongly believed that violence or trouble caused by protesters would only prove to men that women could not be trusted with the right to vote.
