The Hollowayettes – Suffragettes in Holloway Prison

The Hollowayettes – Suffragettes in Holloway Prison

3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

On 21 June 1906 a twenty-nine-year-old woman from Lancashire became the first suffragette to be sent to Holloway Prison, the most infamous jail for women in Europe.

Over the following eight years, Holloway became a graduating university for militants, and the suffragettes’ experience would forever change the way the British public viewed the incarceration of women.

But while the popular image remains one of forcible feeding, Bad Girls tells of their resistance to prison discipline, culminating in a bomb attack of 1913.

Join Caitlin Davies for an illustrated talk on the history of the suffragettes at Holloway, a tale of both victimization and bravery.

Caitlin Davies is a novelist, non-fiction author and award-winning journalist. Bad Girls: A History of Rebels and Renegades was published by John Murray on International Women’s Day, March 8th 2018

Cost: £9
