PG-13 | | Drama, History
In 1912 London, a young working mother is galvanized into radical political activism supporting the right for women to vote, and is willing to meet violence with violence to achieve this end.
The investigation of the suffragette movement was the first instance of law enforcement using photo surveillance of persons of interest.
Inspector Arthur Steed:
The fear is, they won't break, Sir. If one of them dies, we'll have blood on our hands and they'll have their martyr.
Benedict Haughton: That must not happen, or Mrs Pankhurst will have won.
Emily Davison is seen willingly sacrificing herself by walking in the horse track of Ascot and being trampled over by a horse. While she did die like this, her intentions are debated as, among other things, had bought a ticket back to London, as well as ticket for a ball that same evening. Most historians agree that her death was an accident, and she was merely trying to put the suffragette banner on the horse when she was run over.
