This book is a collection of Sylvia Pankhurst’s writing on her visits to North America in 1911-12. Pankhurst got her hands dirty, meeting striking laundry workers in New York, visiting female prisoners in Philadelphia and Chicago and grappling with horrific racism in Nashville, Tennessee. These never-before published writings mark an important stage in the development of the suffragette’s thought, which she brought back to Britain to inform the suffrage campaign there. Katherine Connelly is a writer, historian and an expert on Sylvia Pankhurst.
