Suffragette in prison

This photograph of a suffragette was taken by the authorities for future identification. The accompanying note explains that the arm encircling her neck was necessary in order to keep her head up for the camera. As you can see, she keeps her eyes closed as a final act of defiance.
Catalogue reference: PCOM 7/252 (1913)
