Sylvia Pankhurst

Sylvia Pankhurst, 1911, matte gelatin silver print, signed in ink by the sitter on recto, 8 1/2 x 6 3/4″

British suffragette Sylvia Pankhurst was a militant campaigner for women’s right to vote. As a socialist, she also refused to uncouple the women’s movement from the fight for equality across all of society. She fought relentlessly for a world of collaboration, beauty, justice, and peace.
