Suffragette Dressed for an Agenda

FFF

“Mr. President How Long Must Women Wait For Liberty” reads the sign held by the suffragette in front of the White House during the 1917 women’s protest. Her A-line skirt, low heeled shoes, and lightly adorned hat convey a sense of practical femininity. She is in keeping with the trends of the 19-teens but with sensible modifications for a woman with an agenda.
