Emily Wilding Davison-A Suffragette’s Family Album



Emily Wilding Davison has been frozen in our imagination since the king’s horse struck her in 1913 and she died 4 days later, the suffragette martyr.

She did not live to write her memoirs, but now over a hundred years later, her family share Emily’s real story. Drawing on the Davison family archives and filled with more than 150 rare photographs, this book explores the real cost of achieving women’s suffrage, one of the defining events of the 20th century.


128  pages, paperback. 15.5cm wide x 23.2  cm high.
