The Suffragette Kitty Marion arrested for heckling David Lloyd George to the Royal National Eisteddfod, Wrexham, Wales, Thursday September 5th 1912. Kitty Marion gained admission to the meeting with the sole aim of heckling Lloyd George. As a result of her action Marion was set upon by the crowd and 'received blows and abuse from every side, my hat being torn off and hair pulled down', as depicted in the image. During her subsequent imprisonment Marion complained in a letter to a fellow prisoner that her beautiful auburn hair was 'falling out dreadfully here' (in prison). Whilst she believed this was as a result of her treatment by the hostile 'mob' in Wrexham it is more likely the poor condition of her hair was due to her prison hunger-strike.
