Suffragette Inspired Jewelry

Suffragette movement of the late 1800’s. Throughout the years women have unified to fight for their rights to have equality. The suffragette movement is one of the earliest women’s organizations to promote the right to vote for women worldwide. The colors of the suffragette movement are white, green and purple.  Purple symbolizes dignity, Green symbolizes hope and white symbolizes purity. These women were persecuted outright and endured arson, property damage and were jailed for voicing their opinions. These women banned together and used their minds and bodies to stand up for their rights. Although these women suffered for us and our rights, we are now having to fight  again for what is right. On January 21st, 2017 we banned together, once again, to voice our opinions through one of the largest, peaceful protests in history because women’s rights are still an issue to be upheld.
