Votes For Women Scarf
This scarf 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. Emily died later from the injuries sustained, but her heroic gesture has echoed down through the ages. Women gained limited voting rights in 1918 and finally achieved the same rights as men in 1928. Wear this scarf to show how far womankind has come but also to remind us that equal treatment and full respect for women are still to be won.
SPECIFICATIONS: 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.
