Dogs Pose With Suffragette Statue in Manchester for International Women's Day

Two dogs posed in front of a statue of British suffragette Emmeline Pankhurst in Manchester, England, ahead of International Women’s Day on Wednesday, March 8.

Mica Quartey shot the video of her two Hungarian Puliks, Zeb and Kimba, to pay tribute to Pankhurst, who was instrumental in winning voting rights for women during the Suffragette movement of the early 1900s.

Pankhurst died in 1928, just weeks before the 1928 Equal Franchise Act became law and granted equal voting rights to women and men.
