It wouldn’t be right to omit Emily Davison. Depending on your political views, you may feel our world is once more in a state of turmoil. Perhaps it always has been. But there’s good & bad turmoil.

This hero, & her accomplices, in the fight for votes & rights for women, has to be surely, the good variety. Imprisoned & then tortured (a strong word, I know, but an appropriate one) at the hands of the British government, the suffragettes changed our world for the better. At the last election, one hundred years after the right to vote was given, one of my students said she didn’t want to vote… so there was no hunger strike medal for her that day.

But look into the eyes of Emily. There’s truth there, and hope, amongst the sadness & pain.

Deeds not words.
