Suffragette Hunger Strike medal. Suffragettes treated the fight for the vote as a military campaign. From 1909, those who served prison terms for militancy were awarded medals for their service to the cause. This hunger-strike medal was presented to the suffragette Violet Jones on her release from prison in 1909. It has a green, white, purple striped hanging ribbon, and is inscribed 'For Valour / December 8th 1909 / September 4th 1909 / Hunger Strike / Violet Jones'. Hunger-strike medals were first presented, in St James's Hall, Great Portland Street, in early August 1909.
