Votes for Women Rosette
HOYFM.2022.115, Ulster Museum CollectionExplore our history collections
Collecting material associated with the campaign for women’s suffrage is a priority for National Museums NI, so we are pleased to have acquired this ‘Votes for Women’ rosette for the Ulster Folk Museum. From the early 20th century, the rosette is contemporary with the majority of the Folk Museum’s collection and is relevant to themes of social and political change and campaigns for equality. It is in the green, white and purple colours of the Women’s Social and Political Union (WSPU).
