description
This poster reads,'The Cat and Mouse Act passed by liberal government' was first published in 1914. The 'Prisoner's Temporary Discharge for Ill-Health Act' of 1913 meant that imprisoned suffragettes on hunger-strike could be released because of ill-health, but could then be re-imprisoned once they had recovered. This 'letting them go; then catching them again' earned the measure the popular title of 'The Cat and Mouse Act'. This poster forms part of the collection of objects relating to the Suffragette Movement given by the Suffragette Fellowship to the museum in 1950.
