Minnie Lansbury and the Poplar revolt

“My political hero! Minnie Lansbury (nee Glassman) 1889-1922 was the child of Polish Jewish immigrants, who in her short life in the East End of London was a school teacher, suffragette, campaigner for the victims of war, and rebel councillor. She died aged only 32, weakened by a six-week prison spell as one of thirty councillors who refused to collect excessive rates in the impoverished London borough of Poplar.”
