This tea towel is based on a 1909 poster advertising Votes for Women, the official Suffragette newspaper. The design is by Hilda Dallas (1878-1958) and incorporates the Suffragette colours of purple, green and white. "The Suffragettes" was the nickname of the Women’s Social and Political Union, who had broken away from the National Union of Women's Suffrage Societies to pursue militant tactics under Emmeline Pankhurst. Despite the depiction of Suffragettes by their critics as ‘unladylike monstrosities’, our heroine stands empowered and elegant, comfortable in both her femininity and politics.
