Next a reissue of Shirley Harrison’s stunning authorised biography of SYLVIA PANKHURST with a new foreword from the author’s son, Dr Richard Pankhurst. Charting the life of this rebellious suffragette, the author’s study shows a woman whose passion against oppression was not just limited to the cause of Votes for Women – her ability to attract interest in the events and issues of her time was so strong that Hitler placed her on an arrest list!
