Emily Thornberry Labour MP for Islington South and Finsbury
2013 marks the centenary of the death of Emily Wilding Davison, the suffragette who was trampled by the King’s horse at the Epsom Derby.
As the only Emily ever elected to Parliament I held a memorial for her in Westminster Hall. You can watch footage of the event here.
I am also leading a campaign to erect a statue of Emily Davison erected in Parliament, as a tribute to her impact on her sacrifice the wider suffrage movement. Please sign the No.10 petition here.
