Sylvia Pankhurst: Sexual Politics and Political Activism

by Barbara Winslow Author

Sylvia Pankhurst was a leading women's suffrage activists in late 19th and early 20th century Britain. Sylvia was consistently focused on the problems facing working women and women in the labour movement. This illuminating and overdue biography of one of the seminal figures in feminist and socialist struggle showcases Pankhurst's commitment to beginning her politics from a position of solidarity with the least among us. From organizing with immigrant and working women in London's East End to her communist, internationalist, and anti-fascist political ideology, author Barbara Winslow brings us a portrait of a brilliant and inspiring feminist and socialist whose story is not often told in the history of women's suffrage. A must read for any young feminists and socialists seeking to ground their politics in a history of the movement.
