More suffrage from me. I am very taken with all the ribbons. Processions2018 has adopted the purple, white and green of the suffragettes – originally, green, white and violet for ‘give women the vote’ and also symbolically as purple for loyalty, white for purity and green for hope – but the less militant suffragists wore red, green and white for ‘give women rights’. I saw both suffragist and suffragette ribbon in the archive. All beautifully wrapped and stored. Here follows ribbon worn as a neck piece, complete with tassels and a suffragist’s sash, which bears the pinholes of a brooch used to fasten it at the hip. Also ribbons identifying stewards and marshalls and a very lovely rosette.

Our fabulous workshop with artist Dorcas Casey, organised by SAW, is underway. The girls are making flags for The PROCESSIONS project. PROCESSIONS is a once in a lifetime opportunity to take part in a mass participation artwork to celebrate 100 years of votes for women. 100 women artists have been commissioned to work with organisations & communities across the UK to create centenary banners and flags for PROCESSIONS. On Sunday June 10th, women and girls in Belfast, Cardiff, Edinburgh and London will walk together as a living portrait of women in the 21st century. We have another workshop next week to make our flags. More info on SAW blog and #SAW #culturematters #14-18Now #PROCESSIONS2018 #Artichoke
