2014: Parliament event – interactive image

To Freedoms Cause

‘To Freedom’s Cause’ by Kate Willoughby



On Thursday 13th February 2014, an historic event took place in the House of Commons when TO FREEDOM’S CAUSE, Kate Willoughby’s play about suffragette Emily Davison was performed to a packed audience as part of a special event in support of Emily Thornberry MP‘s Emily Davison Statue in Parliament Campaign.


TO FREEDOM’S CAUSE should be seen by every woman and teenage girl.
And by anyone who couldn’t be bothered to vote. Moving, stirring & passionate.
–  Jane Garvey, BBC Radio 4, Woman’s Hour presenter 


Emily Davison was a pioneer in using modern media to promote direct political action. She believed that women and men had the right to be equal citizens.

Here’s an interactive image, which includes links to the play and debate micro trailers, audience vox pops and the event Storify:
