Christabel Pankhurst was the driving force behind the Women's Social and Political Union, which was founded by her mother, Emmeline, in 1903 in order to lobby for female suffrage. The organisation became increasingly militant, largely under Christabel's bold influence. The painting appears to show Pankhurst addressing a public meeting or as part of a public demonstration. She wears a sash with the colours adopted by the Women's Social and Political Union (WSPU): white to stand for purity, green for hope and purple for dignity.
