From the Paper:

"The first recorded hunger strike of a suffragette in prison was staged by Marion Wallace in 1909. Many others followed, such that the hunger strikes drew the sympathy of the public and the press, which were jolted from their own long-held belief that women's place was in the home. This growing feeling of sympathy turned to outrage when it was reported that prison authorities resorted to force-feeding the inmates by shoving a steel tube down their throat or nose."
