Title

Alice Paul on force-feeding in England

Subject

Hunger strike and forced feeding

Description

Alice Paul engaged in hunger strikes when imprisoned for agitating for Women's suffrage in England. This article describes the process and her reaction. "When the forcible feeding was ordered, I was taken from my bed, carried to another room and forced into a chair, bound with sheets(?) and sat upon bodily by a fat murderer who's duty it was to keep me still. Then the prison doctor, assisted by two female attendants, placed a rubber tube up my nostrils and pumped liquid food through it into the stomach. Twice a day for a month, November 1, to December 1, this was done." Cited from the article, starting at the second column, seventh line.
