WOMEN, SUFFRAGE AND POLITICS
The Papers of Sylvia Pankhurst, 1882-1960, from the Internationaal Instituut voor Sociale Geschiedenis, Amsterdam

Part 1: Inventory Numbers 1-224

"...the jigsaw of an extraordinary life..."
Shirley Harrison, writing in 'Sylvia Pankhurst: A Maverick Life, 1882-1960' (2004)

Sylvia Pankhurst was an extraordinary woman.

  • She played a key role in the women's suffrage movement;
  • She fought for women's rights in Africa, America and across Europe;
  • She was prominent in the Labour movement, founding the Women's Dreadnought, a periodical aimed at British working class women;
  • She was a pronounced anti-imperialist and spent 24 years fighting for Ethiopian independence;
  • She was a great Pan-Africanist, admired by W E B DuBois;
  • She was a great writer, editing 4 newspapers, writing 22 books and countless articles on topics such as the history of women's suffrage, the Russian Revolution and the growth of socialism.

This project documents all of these issues and more.  Part 1 covers her correspondence; over 70 manuscript notebooks; literary manuscripts; and minute books and records of the East London Federation of Suffragettes (ELFS).
