Event details "'I Do Feel Greedy!': Hunger Strikes, Consumption, and the Incarcerated Suffragette Body"

The British suffragettes’ use of hunger strikes was a dangerous yet effective method in garnering sympathy for their cause. Denying their bodies food and even water, incarcerated Suffragettes would compel prison doctors to forcibly tube-feed them in order to keep them healthy and alive. Yet while the denial of food is often discussed and even, on occasion, valorized, as an integral part of early-feminist protest, there is little critical attention paid to the suffragettes’ personal relationship with food.
