Women's March English china mug

VOTES FOR WOMEN!

This mug is based on a 1911 vintage design by Margaret Morris, intended to illustrate the song sheet of "The March of the Women," a song dedicated to suffragette leader Emmeline Pankhurst. It became the music for the women’s suffrage movement throughout the United Kingdom and elsewhere. Activists sang it at rallies and in prison too: the composer, Ethel Smyth, reputably conducted the anthem with her toothbrush from a window of Holloway Prison. In some ways, you could call it the feminist pop anthem of its time. What's yours? Sing it loud: perhaps like Ethel, accompanied by your toothbrush; or like most of us, in the shower; or like the most radical among us, on the streets.

Let your first-wave sisters inspire you to demand women's political rights with this feminist china mug.
