Votes For Women 100 Year Celebration Ornament

$12.00

Mark the 100th Anniversary of the Women's Right to Vote with this hanging ornament adorned with the American Tri-Color Sash worn over a white dress.

Passed by Congress June 4, 1919, and ratified on August 18, 1920, the 19th amendment granted women the right to vote. The 19th amendment guarantees all American women the right to vote. Achieving this milestone required a lengthy and difficult struggle; victory took decades of agitation and protest.

Women’s suffrage displays movements through color

During periods of the movement women were encouraged to wear dresses in delicate fabrics and colors, with white often the color of choice. Sashes of purple and green were worn over the white dress in England. While in America the colors were changed to White, Purple and Gold.

Gold replaced green as a color of the women’s suffrage movement. The use of gold dates back to 1867.   Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony adopted the Kansas state flower, the sunflower, as a symbol of the suffrage cause. Therefore, gold pins, ribbons, and sashes, as well as yellow roses became well known symbols. 

Purple is the color of loyalty, constancy to purpose, unswerving steadfastness to a cause. White, the emblem of purity, symbolizes the quality of our purpose; and gold, the color of light and life, is as the torch that guides our purpose, pure and unswerving.” The three colors signified loyalty, purity, and life.
