4 June marks 100 years since the death of the suffragette Emily Wilding Davison at the Epsom Derby.

Our Hillcroft Access to Higher Education students study the suffragettes campaign to win votes for women as part of their course.

Here’s a taster of the resources we have on the suffragettes fight for women’s suffrage which includes the BBC Archive Suffragettes website, DVDs as well as books.

UK Parliament has just added a special page to commemorate Emily’s life and campaign work on their Emily Wilding Davison┬ápage.

There is currently a campaign running launched in The Guardian’s letters page to get a minute’s silence to commemorate Emily death. Visit the Emily Wilding Memorial Davison Campaign to find out more.
