Brown leather autograph album containing the signatures and words of inspiration to Jessie from many women who took part in the suffragette movement from 1906-1913, including Mary Leigh and Marion Wallace Dunlop. Among the pages can be found the Shakespeare quote: "For a great right do a little wrong!"
Pinned into a card for the International Women's Franchise Club is part of a ribbon or banner held by Emily Wilding Davison on May 25th, 1913. Emily was a member of the WSPU and millitant fighter for the cause, but is mostly remembered for her death. She was trampled by King George V's horse at the 1913 Derby in a failed attempt to pin a suffragette badge onto the horse. Her death marked a culmination and a turning point of the militant campaign.
