i learnt about emmeline pankhurst in school

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?


Best wishes,

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