Lady Constance Lytton was the most unlikely of suffragettes. The daughter of a Viceroy of India and herself a lady in waiting to the Queen, a chance encounter with a suffragette suddenly gave her life a purpose. She was converted to the cause of women's suffrage and went to prison, but Constance soon found that her name and class singled her out for privileged treatment. So she decided to go to prison in disguise, getting herself arrested in Liverpool. She was force-fed 8 times before her identity was discovered and she was released.
