A treatise exposing the dangers and reprehensibility of force-feeding prisoners on hunger strike. Although 100 years old, this has lost none of its relevance in the light of what is happening in Guantanamo bay.

. The Women's Social and Political Union are NOT asking for a vote for every woman,
but
slIDply that sex shall cease to
be
a disqualification for the franchise.At present men who pay rates and taxes, who are owners, occupiers, lcxlgers, or have the
service or university franchise
possess
the Parliamentary vote. The Women's Social anPolitical Union claim that women who
fulfil
the same conditions shall also enjoy the franchise.
It
is estimated that when this ~im has beenoconceded about a million.and.a.quarter womenwill
possess
the vote, in additioc. to the seven-and~a.ba1f million men who are at present
enfranchi~d.
The Women's Social and Political Union claim that a simple measure, giving tbe voteto women on tbese terms, sball
be passed 
immediately.

By FRANK MOXON, M.B., B.S.
In speaking on this serious question of ForcibleFeeding I shall avoid anything which might inany way be regarded as of a sentimental nature.
It
is my wish to present to you a perfectly franand full account of the medical aspect of thistreatment. I feel that this is a very great respon-sibility for me to undertake, as it is a seriousindictment, in my opinion, of my profession.
It
ismy resolve, however, no matter what the conse-quences be, to protest with all my power, againstthe hideous torture that is going on in His __ Majesty's prisons, under the name of medical~) treatment .
