British suffragettes become outraged by the British government when they learn it decides not to give women the right to vote. They accidentally break out into a riot, and their resistance is suppressed by the police.
Emmeline Pankhurst, a militant British suffragette and activist who helped women secure the right to vote, gives her "I Incite This Meeting to Rebellion" speech to her supporters. In her speech, she advocates that they take more drastic measures in their fight for suffrage. Police receive word of the gathering, and the situation becomes tense when they arrive.
