Sleeveprint: Emily Wilding Davison Centenary Derby Day 4 June 1913
4 June 1913, Emily Wilding Davison stepped on to the Epsom Racecourse to stop the Derby. A heroic, yet fatal, this action was the single most important protest in a mass, and militant, campaign by the Suffragettes. Her cause, Votes for Women. In 1918 the Representation of the People Act finally awarded women the vote, but only for those over 30 years of age. In 1928, fifteen years after Emily gave her life for the cause women’s parity in the vote was finally recognised when the voting age for women was reduced to 21 years, the same as for men.
