Suffragettes over at the History Girls...
I've just written a post at The History Girls about Emily Davison, the suffragette who died under the hooves of the king's horse while it ran in the Derby 100 years ago. She was campaigning on behalf of Votes for Women, since in those days women had no say in the running of the country. (Muse: Would you believe they still won't let unicorns vote?!)
You can watch a video of the race and read more about Emily here:
