What does ELFS stand for?

  • 0 votes

Ok, so im doing GCSE history and ive just been revising about the Suffragettes and Suffragists and im understanding it all and stuff however there were a few abreviations i did not understand. For example; The women's suffrage movement led by Millicent Fawcett was NUWSS. I later found out that this stood for, National Union of Women's Suffrage Society. However the one i am stuck on is ELFS, and typing it into google only comes up with elves, no help whatsoever! Does anybody know what this stands for?
Thanks :) ***

I did this in A-Level history. I think it stands for East London Federation of the Suffragettes. It used to be called the East London Federation of the Women's Social and Political Union. It was formed in 1912 by Sylvia Pankhurst, but when Sylvia refused to accept the anti-male policy of the WSPU, she was expelled from the WSPU and changed the name to ELFS in 1914.

Hope this helps

Good luck on your exam
