Tin badge designed by Sylvia Pankhurst for the suffragette campaign. Incorporating the purple, white and green colour-scheme of the Women's Social and Political Union, the design depicts a woman breaking free: stepping through a gate with iron bars and heavy chains, carrying a 'Votes for Women' streamer.

This is stunning!! Child & Child suffragette brooch ca. 1900 via The Victoria & Albert Museum In the Victorian and Edwardian age, colors, stones, and flowers all had strong symbolic significance and often stood for something. Suffragettes used the colors green, white and violet because the first letter of each corresponded to Give Women the Vote. I love when things have meaning.
