|This petition to the Home Secretary was written by a suffragette
in Holloway Prison, jailed for causing malicious damage. She does
not see herself as a criminal, but argues that it was necessary to
break the law in order to make a valid political protest. She therefore
claims that she should have certain privileges, such as the right
to read newspapers and to keep her watch.
