Emily Davison Wash Bag

A wash bag with an unusual suffragette design. British Suffragette campaigner 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. This novelty make-up bag 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.

Small wash bag in pre-treated 280gsm white panama with a white top zip. Measures 5.1in by 9.4in with a 2.4in gusset. Digitally printed on both sides. White waterproof lining. Suitable for toiletries and make-up.
