Meet the daring, disabled suffragette.
May took part in the window-smashing campaign in March 1912, and was sentenced to one month’s hard labour.
This prison letter from Alice Ker, who was also imprisoned for window-smashing, describes May in prison: “Miss Billinghurst is here with her tricycle. She has irons on each leg, and can only walk with crutches, her tricycle works with handles. She drives it round the yard at exercise time. It is painted in the colours, with a placard, Votes for Women, on the back of it.”
