Votes for Women tea towel

This tea towel is based on a 1909 poster advertising Votes for Women, the official Suffragette newspaper.

Features

  • 100% organic cotton
  • Sturdy half panama unbleached US cotton (48cm x 70cm)
  • Our special inks mean that colours last in the wash
  • Includes hanging loop
  • Designed and printed in the UK

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. One hundred years on, thanks to suffrage movements across the world, women can vote almost everywhere, but often their voices are still drowned out – and when they are heard they’re threatened to be shut down as nasty women, like Hillary Clinton was in the third presidential debate of the 2016 American presidential elections. Here’s to you, “unladylike monstrosities” and “nasty women.”
