This image on this wash bag is based on a 1909 poster advertising Votes for Women, the official Suffragette newspaper. The design is by Hilda Dallas (1878-1958).

"The Suffragettes" was a nickname given to the Women’s Social and Political Union, who had broken away from the National Union of Women's Suffrage Societies in order to pursue militant tactics under Emmeline Pankhurst. Despite the depiction of Suffragettes by their critics as ‘unladylike’, 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 drowned out – and when they are heard they are frequently misrepresented or ignored. So here’s your chance to show solidarity with your sisters in the fight for female equality!
