October 6, 1913:

Oldham weavers’ assistant Annie Kenney becomes the first Suffragette to be arrested after she and Christabel Pankhurst heckle Liberal minister Sir Edward Grey in Manchester.
The pair unfurled a banner proclaiming ‘Votes for Women’ at the Liberal rally in the Free Trade Hall before being thrown out and charged with causing an obstruction.
Kenney served three days in prison. Pankhurst was taken into custody for technical assault and later released.
The actions of the two women signalled the start of a new phase of militant tactics in the struggle for women’s suffrage in the UK.
