This scarf, in the Suffragette colours of green, white, and purple, is a copy of the one that Emily Davison attempted to drape over the King's horse at Epsom racecourse that fateful day back in 1913, as a protest for the right of women to vote. Although Davison died four days later from the injuries sustained at the racecourse, her heroic gesture has echoed down through the ages. She became a martyr for the suffragette cause, and women eventually gained limited voting rights in 1918 and finally achieved the same rights as men in 1928.

Ah, Feminism and equality! Doesn’t that just give you a warm and fuzzy feeling inside? Oh wait – maybe it’s the scarf…

Made from cotton lawn, a plain weave textile designed using fine, high-thread-count yarns, which results in a silky, untextured feel. Measures 42cm x 172cm.
