Emily Davison Tea Towel

A classic tea towel for the modern Suffragette and essential accessory in any feminist kitchen. Emily Davison died on 8th June, 1913, from injuries sustained at Epsom racecourse where, four days earlier, she had stepped in front of the King's horse as a protest for the right of women to vote in the UK. This novelty tea towel features the cover of the Suffragette Newspaper published on June 13th a day before the funeral procession in London. It portrays Davison as an angel on the racecourse. Women finally gained limited voting rights in 1918 and the same rights as men in 1928.

Half Panama unbleached cotton (heavy weight, textured finish). Stitched on all four sides. Includes hanging loop. Measures approximately 19in x 27.5in. Machine wash at 110 degrees max. We recommend that before you use your tea towel for the first time you wash it at least once to soften up the material and make it more absorbent for drying dishes. Please note size can vary slightly.
