Votes for women card - blank card, feminist card, vote100
Beautiful print of an original embroidery, this card captures the simple lines of the piece that I made as part of my vote 100 celebration series. Vote 100 commemorates the granting of partial suffrage tonwomen in Britain 100 years ago and reminds us of the fight that still continues.
Amongst all the sarcasm and silliness, I am quite a political person. The history of women was, and still is, overlooked because much of it was recorded in ways not normally studied by academia. Much of Women’s History involves looking a quilting, embroidery and other traditionally feminine crafts to unlock the stories they contain. This is one of the many reasons I love stitching and hope that I have captured part of the story here.
