Elizabeth Crawford on the OUP blog: Why is Emily Wilding Davison remembered as the first suffragette martyr?
“She paid ‘the price of freedom’. Glad to pay it — glad though it brought her to death (..) the first woman martyr who has gone to death for this cause.” Who do you think was the subject of this eulogy? Was it Emily Wilding Davison, the centenary of whose death is being honoured this June?
