I've always had a complicated relationship with pink. It's not so much the color itself. I mean, pink's a cool color and all, but when it's ALL you see and it's basically the only color used in stuff marketed to you, it becomes a symbol of oppression and it makes me want to completely reject. Give me a colorful selection, and then pink won't seem like such a bad thing.
Emmeline Pankhurst (1858 or 1857 -- 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."
