PUBLISHED to celebrate the centenary of women’s right to vote, this carefully researched book is based on original documents and Emily’s own letters, and includes her mother’s letters to her suffragette daughter and how her home village has commemorated Emily’s role in women’s suffrage. Emily was seriously injured at Epsom racecourse in June 1913 after running out in front of King George V’s Derby runner and she died in hospital several days later.
