Best remembered as a suffragette, Sylvia Pankhurst was also a passionate supporter of the Russian revolution, a founder of the British Communist Party and a talented visual artist. Fighting for women to have the vote at the beginning of the century, she became a campaigner against colonialism in Africa after the Second World War. She dedicated her life to fighting oppression and injustice.

Sylvia Pankhurst is played by Sharon Morgan and this programme, made for Channel Four, is presented by the late Professor Gwyn Alf Williams. It was directed by Michele Ryan who will take part in the Q and A following the screening.
