Applique # 3 of 8 for my Liberation Skirt! Suffragist or Suffragette, Suffrage started in the UK. It has also been stated that the US movement started as Suffragists but many became more active and militant and were termed Suffragettes. Whichever, whatever this applique for my Liberation Skirt Project is a tribute to strong, intelligent women willing to stand up and sacrifice everywhere in the world!
It is made from a single vintage handkerchief and other recycled bits and pieces and is hand sewn and fabric glued where stitching could not do the job. Except for maybe the ‘Nasty Women’ signage is authentic and taken from different photos during the Suffragist movement in the US.
Unfortunately we are now on the verge of needing to renew this movement along with the marches and protests of the 1960’s!
