The "Votes for Women" motto was used in 1909 at the famous suffrage rally at Marble House in Newport, Rhode Island. This collection is inspired by the original tea service that was made for that occasion. This button is an adaptation of the pins worn by the women of the suffrage movement. "Votes for Women" became the rally cry of a generation during the first part of the 20th century. Button measures 2 inches in diameter and has a safety pin closure.
