Pankhurst lived with the Italian anarchist Silvio Corio and lived in Woodford Green for over 30 years.

She became a big supporter of Ethiopia after the Italian invasion and became  a friend and adviser to the Ethiopian Emperor Haile Selassie, moving to the capital Addis Ababa in 1956 with her son, Richard.

She died in Addis Ababa in 1960, aged 78.

It was founded in the Pankhurt's home in Manchester on October 10, 1903.

It wanted to be a women-only body which would campaign for social reforms. It adopted the slogan 'Deeds, not words'.

She devised its logo as well as banners and posters, she also contributed to the WSPU newspaper, Votes for Women.

The strategy of the group became more militant as it became more and more frustrated due to a lack of progress with their cause.

Many members found themselves in jail for their actions  - including smashing shop windows  and even burning stately homes - with many then also going on hunger strike.

Sylvia though began to disagree with the WSPU, while it remained independent of any political party she wanted it to be explicitly socialist in outlook and aligning itself with the Independent Labour Party.

The group eventually expelled her and she founded the East London Federation of Suffragettes which turned into the Workers' Socialist Federation.
