Patricia Suffragette Ornament

The suffragette is wearing a long red dress with a black and white sign promoting "Votes for Women", and a black hat with a white plume. The ornament is approximately 6 ½" tall.

The Suffragist movement advocated voting rights for women in the early 20th century.  The struggle for the vote did not end with the ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment. In some states, African American women were unable to freely exercise their right to vote until the 1960s. However, these difficulties did not deter African-American women in their effort to secure the vote.
