SYLVIA PANKHURST,
Citizen of the World

by Shirley Harrison

A fascinating, very readable yet concise account of the great work done by this formerly neglected heroine who, after rising to prominence as a Suffragette, devoted her life to campaigning for a fairer society – with ideology long before her time. Read about Sylvia’s importance as a graphic artist, her stands against racism and fascism, her campaigns for peace, her relationship with the great Ethiopian Emperor Haile Selassie – and much more.

Though until recently Sylvia has been less well-known than her mother Emmeline and sister Christabel, evidence here successfully upholds the claim that Sylvia was the most interesting of the Pankhurst women and, arguably, the most effective.

Beautifully presented, with examples of Sylvia's paintings and art work, numerous photos, and additional illustrations by Nic Watts.

'…An interesting window into social and political life in the late-nineteenth to mid-twentieth century. As the author suggests, it is time to re-examine Sylvia Pankhurst's place in history – and not only has she done that rather well, but she has offered a purposeful template for the exploration of the many other remarkable women in history.'     – Sue Johnson, Senior Lecturer in History, University of Worcester. Review in HerStoria magazine, Autumn 2009
