Know beauty

PSA: Emily Davison most likely did not intentionally throw herself under the king’s horse 100 years ago today. It’s more probable that she was trying to attach a WSPU banner to the horse’s reins.

However, that does not detract from the price she paid for trying to further the women’s suffrage movement. Today is a day to remember her - and the many men and women of the WSPU and NUWSS - for winning women the vote in 1918 and again in 1928
