Battling Belles of Bow: In the Footsteps of Sylvia Pankhurst
This summer, our annual walking tour celebrating women in London takes us to Bow where we will follow in the footsteps of Sylvia Pankhurst whose statue will be unveiled next year in Clerkenwell Green. Sylvia chose east London as the starting point for her campaign for women’s suffrage and seeing the plight of the working women and mothers she also established a creche, restaurant and model toy factory in the area. East End women were key to the success of the Suffragette movement and the route highlights their supporters and their workplaces including the famous Bryant & May Match Factory, site of the Matchwomens’ strike of 1888.
