Yawning closet

There’s a new petition doing the rounds to give women’s contribution to politics – the way we live now! – a higher profile in the education of A-level students. Seems the government is attempting to squeeze women into a closet, labelled ‘not really important’. Reminds me of the passionate suffragette, Emily Wilding Davison, who spent the night in a broom cupboard in the House of Commons (coinciding with 1911 census) in her campaign for women’s right to vote. And now the closet yawns again.
