Front and reverse of a suffragette's commemorative medalliion. This medallion commemorates the period of imprisonment of Mrs Helen Tyson. The obverse is inscribed: "To Mrs Helen Tyson/in rememberence of Feb 24th to March 24th 1909. A token of affection from the new union". Suffragettes treated the fight for the vote as a military campaign. From 1909, those who served prison terms were awarded medals for their service to the cause. This medal was presented to the suffragette Helen Tyson on her release from Holloway Gaol. Helen Tyson and her daughters Diana and Leonora became members of the militant Women's Social and Political Union in 1908.
