Emmeline Pankhurst and a group of 200 suffragettes attempted to lead a deputation to King George V at the gates of Buckingham Palace on 21 May 1914. Their aim was to protest against the treatment of suffragette prisoners and to demand the vote for women. More than 2,000 police were deployed to restrain demonstrators and nearly 60 arrests were made. These photographs published in 'The Graphic' show some violent scenes witnessed at the gates of the Royal Palace on the day.
The photographs appeared in 'The Graphic' on 30 May 1914.
