'The Modern Inquisition -Treatment of Political Prisoners under a Liberal Government.' Marion Wallace Dunlop was incarcerated in Holloway Prison for defacing St Stephen's Chapel. In June 1909 she started a hunger strike to protest being refused political prisoner status. Other suffragette prisoners quickly took up the strike. By December one hundred and ten suffragettes were refusing food. To break the strikes, the government insisted all prisoners be forcibly fed. The Women's Social and Political Union published this poster to attack the government during the 1910 General Election.
