Forward-looking and progressive, she is a person who supports change, innovation, and human advancement, and Emmeline Pankhurst is often strongly committed to a humanitarian cause or social improvement. She is extremely aware of the interrelations between all people, and is always projecting personal issues unto a greater whole. Pankhurst sees the political or social ramifications of personal actions, and she wishes to contribute something of value to the world, or at least to her community or group.
The ideals of equality, fairness, human rights, brotherhood, and social justice color Emmeline's whole outlook and approach to life. She is truly interested in the good of the whole and not only her own personal well-being.
Sometimes she may overlook or ignore her own and others' personal needs, desires, and feelings, especially if they do not conform to her ideals of how one should feel or act. Though she has little patience for conservative narrow-mindedness, Emmeline Pankhurst herself is sometimes dogmatic about her beliefs and ideologies.
She is attracted to the avant-garde, the latest advances in human thought and development, and she is eclectic and cosmopolitan in her tastes. She may consider herself a "global citizen" rather than claiming a narrow, limited identification based on nationality, race, familial heritage, etc. Emmeline Pankhurst is strongly influenced by her peer group and the flavor of the times in which she grew up, more so than by parental or family influences. She is involved and active in groups, community efforts, as well as cultural and progressive movements.
On a personal level, Emmeline Pankhurst is friendly and expresses a kind of impersonal good will towards others. Pankhurst probably has many acquaintances but few really close friends, and much of Pankhurst's relationships with others are based on a sharing of common ideals and principles, rather than on emotional ties. Others see Emmeline Pankhurst as a good friend and a comrade who is objective, fair and rather detached emotionally. Emmeline does not often show her emotions, and may be unsure about how to respond to others' emotional expression, for she tends to be very rational.
Emmeline Pankhurst is also very independent and refuses to be possessed by any individual. Emmeline Pankhurst is not comfortable with traditional sexual roles and is inclined to have "liberated" views about marriage, relationships, sharing of child rearing responsibilities, etc. Emmeline Pankhurst needs to have a life outside of the personal, domestic sphere and to be involved with people on a broader scale. The nurturing of family ties, and close, deep, personal relationships may take a back seat to Pankhurst's work or outside social activities.
At times her feisty spirit, aggressiveness, and a too-forceful approach get Emmeline into trouble. Emmeline Pankhurst tends to take offense when none was intended. She may be viewed as a troublemaker, an upstart, or an egotist with little concern for others. Emmeline Pankhurst needs to moderate her temper to avoid constant irritation with those in her environment.
In significant ways, Pankhurst's emotional nature and personal needs are at odds with the way she presents herself. As a result of this inconsistency, Emmeline Pankhurst may be uncomfortable showing her instinctive responses and true feelings. She may put them aside, maybe even be ashamed of them.
When Emmeline Pankhurst is in an emotionally charged situation, those who do not know her well may be quite surprised at her reactions or behavior. The real challenge, though, is to completely accept herself, so that she does not act as if her emotional needs and impulses did not count for very much.
Emmeline Pankhurst feels good about herself and enjoys good relationships with her friends and neighbors. She exchanges ideas with them in a very relaxed and open manner, always willing to learn more about herself, the world and other people.
