Sylvia Pankhurst - Was an English campaigner for the suffragist movement in the United Kingdom. She started to work full-time with the Women's Social and Political Union (WSPU) with her sister, Christabel, and her mother. She concentrated her activity on local campaigning with the East London Federation of the WSPU.
She and her sister Christabel did not get along. Sylvia was against turning the WSPU towards solely upper- and middle- class women and using militant tactics, while Christabel thought it was essential. Christabel felt that suffrage was a cause that should not be tied to any causes trying to help working-class women with their issues. Christabel felt that it would only drag the suffrage movement down and that all of the other issues could solve once women had the right to vote.
