TfL apologise after sexist message written by Tube station staff | London

Transport for London has apologised after a sign making attempting to make light of Emily Davison’s death was put up at one of its stations.

Evelyn Clegg, 30, tweeted a photo of a sign she saw at Colliers Wood Tube Station the day after the 100 year anniversary of women gaining the right to vote. She called on TfL to remove it.

The sign read: “100 years ago, suffragette Emily Davison died after throwing herself in front of the King’s Horse.
“History remembers her as being influential in giving women the right to vote.
“What history doesn’t remember is her husband, who didn’t get his tea that night!”

TfL has since apologised and said that they will investigate the issue.

TfL responded to Evelyn’s tweet swiftly, saying it would speak to the station and have the sign removed.
