Emily_Davison100 years ago today, Emily Wilding Davison threw herself in front of the Kings Horse at the Derby, giving up her life for her cause – woman’s suffrage. At the time there was absolute outcry, but Britain would be such a different place today had Ms Davison not committed this act.

Whilst Emily Pankhurst, quite rightly, is usually honoured as the influential character, would the suffrage movement taken such a massive leap forward with Ms Davison bringing the cause to the worlds attention.

Honour and respect for those willing to give up their lives or freedom to aid their cause.
