We are lucky; we got universal adult suffrage along with ind­ependence. But half of Britons—womenfolk—had to wait till 1921. The struggle was tough and bloody, and suffragists like Emmeline Pankhurst had to face a brutish state. The militant Emily Wilding Davison chose a dramatic martyrdom—throwing herself in front of a racing horse at the Epsom Derby on June 4, 1913. Her epitaph? “Deeds not Words”.
