It’s been a busy week or so. Last Monday I represented #Emilymatters and gave the first performance of the new Emily Davison speech from To Freedom’s Cause at the inaugural meeting of the York branch of the Women’s Equality Party.

Here’s a short extract from the finale of the speech, which was inspired by Emily Davison’s writings – from the bravery of the suffragettes to the battles ahead..



Performing this new material in York at the beginning of a new feminist voice in North Yorkshire meant a great to me personally and professionally. See the following storify for the full picture:



I would like to thank Carmel, Pen, Katie, Cathy, Sarah, Helen and everyone at WEP York for the warm welcome. It was great to be in at the start of this exciting new chapter for equality in Yorkshire and the UK!

To quote Emily Davison herself: Yours in the Cause, NO SURRENDER!
