This smart suffragette is ready to march for her right to vote! Her plumed hat and red coat are complemented perfectly by her eye-catching sign and no-nonsense expression.
The suffragettes deliberately used dress and fashion to resist and subvert negative depictions of the movement, attending demonstrations in their best clothes and showing their support with pieces of jewellery, ribbon, or other accessories.
These beautiful decorations are handmade in Thailand and India according to Fair Trade principles. Many of them feature the traditional Indian technique of zardozi embroidery. The manufacturer, St. Nicolas, is a member of the British Association of Fair Trade Suppliers.
Measures approximately 16.5cm tall.
