    根據 David Mitchell 在 1967 年出版的《The Fighting Pankhursts》中引述,此話來源是 Sylvia Pankhurst 在 1921 年一月,因涉入共產黨被關,在法庭上的慷慨陳辭。

    I have gone to war too . . . I am going to fight capitalism even if it kills me. It is wrong that people like you should be comfortable and well fed while all around you people are starving.

    -- Sylvia Pankhurst, Courtroom Speech, Jan 1921; In "The Fighting Pankhursts," by David Mitchell, 1967.

    這裡 gone to war too 的 war 是指第一次世界大戰,指著男人們不要以為大戰裡參戰很神聖,Sylvia 自認也為公義在戰爭,決志與資本主義鬥爭至死,她指責審判她的人只顧自肥,不管周遭那麼多人挨餓。
