Sylvia Pankhurst is perhaps the lesser known member of the famous suffragette family. Emily's daughter and Christabel's sister, she was a remarkable woman in her own right, a true activist who devoted herself to working class women in the East End by setting up cost price restaurants to feed poor women and children. And it was her campaigning for the vote for working class women that caused rifts within her family. Emily and Christabel didn't support universal suffrage, and because of their political differences the two sides didn't speak to each other for many years.
A fierce socialist and internationalist, she became involved in the Ethiopian cause in 1936, after the Italian invasion. She challenged the English government over the setting up of an English Protectorate, writing letters and organising meetings. In 1956, at the invitation of the Emperor Haile Selassie, she moved to Ethiopia with her son Richard and his wife Rita. And it's there - in Addis Addiba - that she's buried.
