It includes many slides of Sylvia’s ground breaking art of women workers (pit-brow lassies, fisher lassies etc.) and archive images. She studied art in London, Manchester and Venice, broke away from her mother and sister’s suffragette organisation the WSPU, and built a working class women’s movement in the East End of London.
Don’t miss this rare chance to catch political theatre covering women’s hidden history of 100 years ago.
