18th June, 1910
We marched from the Embankment to the Albert Hall. It was a glorious
day. The sun shone warmly. Everyone was in good spirits. There
were aristocrats, artists, even my mother looked happy. She who
has been so opposed to my work with the WSPU. More than 10,000 people
had rallied and there were dozens of bands playing. It was
quite incredible. We waved banners, carried flowers, sang along with
the tunes. Hundreds who have been imprisoned for our Cause marched
together in a powerful band. It was all very rousing of spirit.
I felt proud to be a woman, proud to be alive, proud to be a
part of a movement that is fighting to make a difference.
