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.
