Sylvia Pankhurst dedicated her life to fighting oppression and injustice. She was an English campaigner for the suffragette movement.
Sylvia wrote extensively and led a suffragette march in 1913 in Trafalgar Square. She was imprisoned many times for her involvement and endured many months of thirst, hunger and sleep strikes in Holloway Prison.
A blue plaque honours her in Woodford, where she lived for 30 years with her Italian anarchist partner Silvio Corio.
