Title:
News of the World: Suffragettes in Gaol, Amazing Scene in House of Parliament [...]
Publication/Origin:
[London]: [1906]
Description:
This broadsheet lists the headlines for the Sunday, 28 October 1906 issue of News of the World. On 23 October, 150 WSPU members had arrived at Westminister, each asking to see a member of Parliament. Only twenty were admitted, and during the conflict that followed ten suffragettes were arrested. They were later convicted and sentenced to two months in Holloway Gaol. As hoped, the sentences made the newspapers.
