"Harry Potter" author J.K. Rowling praised a feminist protester for standing her ground against a mob of trans activists at the Emmeline Pankhurst statue in Manchester, U.K., saying the famed leader of the British suffragette movement would "be proud." "I never expected the right side of history to include so many people in masks intimidating and assaulting women, did you?" Rowling said on Twitter. "But she never dropped her flag.

Emmelline would be proud."  J.K. Rowling (Evan Agostini/Invision/AP, File) Rowling shared the video of what appeared to be a lone feminist protester waving a purple, white and green suffragette flag being attacked by multiple trans activists, with police eventually intervening to break up the scuffle.

Members of the Manchester Trans Rise Up group dressed up in balaclavas and black outfits held protests at the statue over the weekend, drawing some counter-protests from feminist groups, according to reporting from GB News.
