Notes: Annie Cobden-Sanderson was the daughter of Richard Cobden and the wife of T.J. Cobden-Sanderson of the Doves Press. She was instrumental in advancing the cause of female suffrage, and her imprisonment in 1906 drew a wave of criticism: George Bernard Shaw called her 'one of the nicest women in England suffering from the coarsest indignity'. Her diary records her daily existence whilst in Holloway, her discomfort and anxiety, but most of all her absolute conviction and unwillingness to bend.
