Sisters and Rivals: Sylvia and Christabel Pankhurst and their Impact on Feminism

Ref: C2346508

The Pankhurst family is noted for its role in securing Women's Suffrage in the UK. In addition, sisters Sylvia and Cristabel also went on to promote two distinctive approaches within feminism. While there was much common ground between them ultimately one sister becomes associated with socialism and the Labour Movement, and the other becomes associated with liberal feminism and American evangelism.
