Votes for Women flag pin

This pin badge is inspired by an rectangular, glass-faced badge in green, white and purple, which is housed in the museum's Suffragette collection.
The Suffragette organisation, the Women's Social and Political Union was founded by Emmeline Pankhurst and her daughters in 1903. Until the outbreak of war in 1914 the WSPU campaigned to 'wake up the nation' to the cause of women's suffrage to win 'votes for women'.
