Emily Davison - Real Life Heroes

Emily Wilding Davison (11 October 1872 – 8 June 1913) was a suffragette who fought for women’s suffrage in Britain in the early 20th century. She was known for extreme tactics that resulted in her arrest on nine occasions. Davison joined the group full time but became a violent and militant activist who went against the etiquette of WSPU and was arrested nine times and was force fed on a number of occasions. Whilst it isn’t believed to have been a suicidal intention to the cause, Davison died when she collided with the King’s horse and was trampled to death.
