Though Emmeline Pankhurst seems quite rational and even coolly detached and impersonal at times (as mentioned in the previous chapter), she is precisely the opposite when people really get to know her. She is rather sentimental. And though she appears unconventional or nonconforming, Emmeline's ties to the past and to family history and tradition run deep. Moreover, Pankhurst can be very effective at working for human rights and any issues related to women, children and family.
Emmeline has powerful emotional attachments to the past, her family, her childhood, places she associates with safety and security, and her beginnings. It is very important to Pankhurst to maintain a connection with her roots and heritage and keep family bonds strong. Loyal, devoted, and sentimental, Pankhurst tends to cling to whatever is dear to her - be it a person, a familiar place, or a cherished possession.
She is sympathetic, nurturing, supportive and very sensitive to the emotional needs of other people. Emmeline likes to be needed and to care for others, and she often worries about the people she loves. Emmeline Pankhurst has a very strong need for a sense of belonging and acceptance, and much of her life centers on her home. She is more concerned about people and their feelings than with power, achievement, or position in society. Kindness, consideration and tenderness are more meaningful to Emmeline Pankhurst than any sort of honor the world can bestow.
She is primarily emotional and her views are often dominated by her feelings and her own personal, subjective experiences, rather than reason, logic or abstract principles. It is difficult for her to judge situations fairly and objectively because her personal sympathies and loyalties usually factor in. Emmeline Pankhurst takes things very personally and sometimes builds a wall around herself to shield herself from pain and rejection. Emmeline Pankhurst feels rather shy and vulnerable at heart. She also tends to be moody and experiences frequent mood swings. Emmeline Pankhurst needs to have a place and time in her life to withdraw, introspect, dream and replenish herself; otherwise Emmeline Pankhurst becomes cranky and unhappy with those around her.
Emmeline Pankhurst functions in an instinctive, irrational manner and likes to immerse herself in creative activities where she can express her feelings, imagination and instincts. Pankhurst often loves to cook, since it can be both creative and a way to nurture and nourish others. Emmeline Pankhurst also has a great affinity for music, because it evokes and communicates feelings that may be difficult or impossible to put into words.
Her compassion, sensitivity, and imagination are Pankhurst's strong points. Her faults include an inability to let go of the past and move forward, clannishness and prejudice, and a tendency for self-pity when facing hardship.
Her energies are directed to either perfecting her techniques, skills, and abilities in work, or in "perfecting", refining, and improving herself as a person. Critical analysis and attention to minute detail are intrinsic in either process. The urge to bring about a state of wholeness or optimal functioning is a strong motivation of Emmeline Pankhurst's, and she is quite a perfectionist!
Pankhurst can easily become overly identified or involved with the function she performs, with her work, or with her own health and "growth process".
She is a positive, vital, energetic and active go-getter. She enjoys competition, and her initiative and self-confidence make Emmeline Pankhurst a winner.
Along with her energy and drive, Emmeline Pankhurst has high ideals and an active fantasy life. There is a dreamer and an idealist in Pankhurst, as well as a doer and a fighter. Emmeline wants to win but not at the expense of others, and this may be somewhat of a dilemma for her.
She is imaginative and sensitive to anything colorful, beautiful or magical. She is attracted to artistic and creative pursuits, music and mysticism. Her spiritual values color Emmeline's whole perspective and approach to life. She is idealistic and perhaps impractical.
Her vitality is not up to par and her will-power a bit weak, making Emmeline Pankhurst vulnerable to swindle or deceit. Her inner discontent and casual attitude could easily lead Pankhurst into dubious schemes. Emmeline should refrain from any activity that seems to be subversive.
