In the early 20th century the East London Federation of Suffragettes built a mass movement for equality from their base on Old Ford Road. As well as campaigning for the vote they ran several unusual enterprises including a toy factory, a nursery housed in a former pub, and three restaurants. Get to know these forgotten East End rebels, who always knew that votes for women were just the beginning!
