East London Federation of the Suffragettes
Group From /1/1914 To 1924
Formed by Sylvia Pankhurst as a breakaway group from the Women’s Social and Political Union (WSPU). It differed from its parent group by being democratic and inclusive of men. It set up the East London Toy Factory, and cut price restaurants, clinics and nurseries for the poor of East London. In March 1916 it renamed itself the Workers' Suffrage Federation (WSF). Before being dissolved, it became affiliated to the Communist Workers International.
