Description

This Suffragette doll is carrying a light-brown handbag with her name in ink - Miss Flora Copper. In her right hand she is holding a flag inscribed with "Votes for Women".

Women had been campaigning for the vote since the mid 1860s and militant suffragettes and law-abiding suffragists were active in Wales which saw some of the most widely-publicised clashes between demonstrators and authorities outside London. Equal voting rights for men and women were finally achieved in 1928.
