“Emily Davison- Suffragette"

Tues 13 November 7.00pm

Emily Davison could have chosen to live a comfortable, if uneventful life, had she so desired.  Instead, she took the path of political controversy and came up against the forces of law and order.  At the same time, she was never fully accepted by her sisters-in-arms within the Suffragette movement and remained rather an outsider. Whether we support or condemn the methods she adopted to promote the cause of women's suffrage, we cannot fail to respect a woman who was prepared to pay the ultimate price for her beliefs.  Emily came from a Northumbrian family and is buried in the family grave in Morpeth. With Ian McArdle.
