Summary:
"Published for the first time, this is Sylvia Pankhurst's text about her two tours of North America in 1911 and 1912. An English militant suffragette, she was expected to appeal for support from progressive elites. Instead, Pankhurst identified with the marginalised and recorded their stories"-- Provided by publisher.
