Set of playing cards made in Holloway Gaol by the suffragette prisoner Mrs Kitty Marshall.
The artist Kitty Marshall first attended a pro-suffrage meeting in 1906. Within a few years she became involved in the militant suffragette campaign. As a married suffragette, her involvement in the campaign was dependent on the support of her husband Arthur. Arthur, a solicitor, proved very useful to the militant Votes for Women campaign and regularly acted on behalf of arrested suffragettes.
Kitty was first imprisoned in November 1910 for throwing a potato at the fanlight over the front door of Home Secretary Winston Churchill. She was subsequently imprisoned a further three times.
