About the name Sylvia’s Corner.
The office space is a corner shop situated amongst residential streets in Stratford. The name Sylvia is a nod to Sylvia Pankhurst who was a suffragette and socialist organiser in the East End of London. She organised with working class women , speaking to 1000s of people in mass meetings about women’s rights. Throughout her life she was an outspoken critic of the British Empire and she formed links with the struggle for a free and independent Ireland. She was an early communist, inspired by the Russian Revolution and later became an anti-fascist organiser. She was known in the East End of London amongst working class women as ‘our Sylvia’. Focus E15 campaign was started by young mothers, who organised in the East End and who have been leading the fight for decent housing. They were prepared to challenge the system and confront authority. Calling this space Sylvia’s Corner links the current struggles led by militant women to the inspiring revolutionary struggles of the past.
