Emily Wilding Davidson a wonderful lady suffragette who fought for our right to vote.
She protested by means of hunger strikes, being force fed 49 times in prison.
Emily died on the 8th June 1913, after 4 days earlier stepping in front of King Geoge V’s horse Anmer at the Epsom Derby on 4th June 1913
As Emily died 104 years to the day of the snap General Election which will be held on 8th June 2017, it seems fitting to remind our lady members that our ancestors fought for our right to vote!
Please use it wisely on 8th June 2017!
