American suffragist Alice Paul has been freed from London's Holloway Prison!
After fifty-five National American Woman Suffrage Association convention delegates vowed to stay in Washington, D.C., all Winter if that was what needed to be done in order to meet with President Wilson, he has finally agreed to receive a N.A.W.S.A. deputation.
"We are going to see President Wilson if it takes all Winter."
"If the Constitution stands in our way, let's tear it up and make a new one!"
The treatment of women by the criminal justice system was denounced today by Louise De Koven Bowen.
Though Alice Paul has refused food since November 5th, and been force-fed three times a day since the 8th, it appears to be the Wilson Administration that's in a rapidly weakening condition and eager to find a compromise.
A secret diary kept by Elizabeth McShane in Occoquan has also come into the hands of the National Woman's Party.
Despite the fact that Lucy Burns and Dora Lewis, leaders of the week-old hunger strike at Occoquan, have been transferred to D.C.'s District Jail, the remaining strikers remain as committed as ever.
The number of suffragists being subjected to the ordeal of force-feeding has suddenly increased from two to five.
