When was she killed?

Hi DuchessPriceFlamingo,

Emmeline died on 14 June 1928 - I think she was ill when she died.

In 1913, another Suffragette called Emily Davison was killed when she threw herself under the king's horse.

I hope that helps. Did you like the story?

Can you put a text instead of the video? I prefer reading more than spending time watching a video.

Hi SapphireFire3000,

If you want read the text instead of watching the video, click on 'Print the story' under 'Documents'. You don't have to print it, you can jut read it on your screen.

I hope that helps.


Best wishes,

We are doing a project on her in school for the next two weeks and I feel so lucky I found this website because it is already helping me with my homework, projects and studies. Emmeline is amazing and I have met her great grand daughter (Kate Pankhurst) at a library because she is a fabulous children’s author and I told her an idea and she turned it into a book!

Hi StylishPlatinum4,


We're really happy this story is helping you with your project about Emmeline. You're right, she was an amazing woman!
