Ethel Moorhead

Ethel Moorhead, 1869-1955

“My name is Ethel Moorhead and I was an artist from Dundee. I was a militant and known as Scotland’s most turbulent Suffragette. I set fires, destroyed property, smashed windows, and I once threw an egg at Winston Churchill. I may even have planted a bomb at Robert Burns’ cottage, but I was never caught. I was force fed on hunger strike in Perth Prison and suffered double pneumonia because of it, but would gladly have suffered more.”
