Expelled from her mother's Women's Social and Political Union (which had a shop on Bowling Green Street) for her socialism, it was Sylvia who got Prime Minister Asquith to see a delegation of working women, and to concede that their argument was ‚Äúmoderate and well-reasoned‚ÄĚ.

Sylvia Pankhurst was among those vilified for opposing WW1, and campaigned for peace throughout her life.

A statue to Leicester suffagette Alice Hawkins will be unveiled in Alice Hawkins Square (aka Market Square) on Sunday 4 February. Details: http://lsec.org.uk/calendar/view_entry.php?id=2143
