Storyline

Weakened by another spell in prison Sylvia Pankhurst joins her mother on a visit to Christabel in Paris but the sisters clash over Sylvia's support for Irish Home Rule. Indeed Christabel's elitism and disregard for the role of working class women in the W.S.P.U. leads Sylvia to form a breakaway group, causing a rift with her mother. Militarism is put aside on the outbreak of war and Mrs Pankhurst insists that women can be instrumental in the war effort though again Sylvia's pacifist view puts her odds with her family. Ironically it is the role of women in helping win the conflict that would appear to contribute to their enfranchisement in 1918, rather than their militarism or suffering. Written by don @ minifie-1
