Sylvia Pankhurst and the suffrage movement in East London

In 1912 Sylvia Pankhurst founded the East London Federation of the Women’s Social and Political Union, the organisation of militant suffragettes.  Standing up to their employers, the police and sometimes members of their own families, working-class suffragettes in East London galvanised the local community into a huge campaign for their political rights.  Katherine Connelly uncovers the inspiring stories of women who have too often been overlooked and forgotten, exploring their acts of resistance, how they changed the city in which they lived, and terrified the Prime Minister.
