Brief montage of moving images from early 20th Century Women's suffrage and equal rights movement in Great Britain.

Scene opens showing the statue of British Women's suffrage movement leader, Emmeline Pankhurst, located in Victoria Tower Gardens next to the Houses of Parliament, Westminster. (This was erected in her memory, in 1930, two years after her death.) A World War 1 parade of women in clothing of religious orders; nurses; some military; and academics. One group carries a banner reading "Demonstrate-Trained Nurses." It also depicts What appears to be an Angel of Mercy and an appeal to buy war bonds. They are followed by women carrying a large British Union Jack, and by others, in academic garb, carrying banners of academic institutions. (This march was probably organized by the "Women's Party," the 1917 group founded by the Panghursts' to replace their "Women's Social and Political Union." The new Party emphasized support for the British war effort.) Scene shifts to suffragette Emmeline Pankhurst viewed from camera behind her right shoulder as she addresses a large crowd. She is standing on a roofed platform in a park-like setting. The audience is mostly civilian, but a soldier is seen here or there. Several London Bobbies are in the audience, close to the speaker's stand. The next scene shows pedestrians gathered near Buckingham Palace, in London. A number of Bobbies (London policemen) are present, some on foot and some on horseback. The Queen Victoria monument is visible in the background. A horse-drawn carriage passes in front of the camera. Next, a woman is seen being arrested by two Bobbies, as passersby watch. An automobile passes and then the woman and police are seen approaching the camera as more officers become involved, keeping spectators away. In the final scene, in the 1920s, a man standing in front of a large group of women, congratulates one (probably Christabel Pankhurst). Closeup shows, from left to right, the man; a somewhat tired-looking Emmeline Pankhurst; and her daughter, Christabel.
