Sylvia Pankhurst

Sylvia Pankhurst


Sylvia Pankhurst (1882-1960) - Suffragette supporting not only middle class womens’ rights to vote, but fighting for the rights of all the working class e.g. dockers and other tradesmen who didn’t have the vote. Arrested eight times, each time suffering the trauma of being force fed, hence her sickly purple and green complexion. Perhaps that’s why she devised the purple and green logo, leaflets and banners?

Greatness? Caring to fight and suffer for the inclusion of the working classes, whilst also having to battle against some of her own family.
