Waiting for minimum critic reviews


A hundred years after Emily Wilding Davison threw herself under the King’s racehorse at the Derby, the rights she fought for are largely taken for granted in Britain. But there are still many places around the world where women risk their lives in pursuit of basic freedoms. This collection of interviews, profiles and first-person accounts – originally published in The Independent to mark the centenary of Davison’s death (on 8 June 1913) – celebrates some of the bravest.
