  • Emmeline Pankhurst with Nurse Pine on her release from prison and hunger strike. On 3rd April 1913 Emmeline Pankhurst was sentenced to three years penal servitude for incitement to place an explosive in a building at Walton, Surrey. In prison she immediately went on hunger strike and was subsequently released after several days. On her recovery she was rearrested and thus began a pattern of hunger strike, release, recuperation and rearrest that continued until the end of July when the police finally decided not to rearrest. During each period of recuperation from hunger strike Emmeline Pankhurst found refuge in a number of safe houses and was always nursed back to health by Catherine Pine.
