Suffragettes

Suffragettes were members of women's organization in the late 19th and early 20th century, particularly in Great Britain. Tactics included hunger strikes, chaining themselves to railings, pouring chemicals into mailboxes, breaking windows and arson. New Zealand was the first country to grant women the right to vote in 1893. It required the 19th Amendment in 1920 to allow women to vote across the United States. In Britain, suffrage was extended to all women over the age of 21 in 1928

This picture was chosen because it reminded me of how under-privileged and unequal the social system used to be concerning the voting rights towards women when we studied for it in class. It can be tied back to the movie we had see, The Iron-Jawed Angels, depicting the struggle of attaining voting rights for women. I choose this pin because I liked how they showed the power women have and should deserve knowing we are the mother of every person.
