Women's March Toiletry Bag

VOTES FOR WOMEN!

This toiletry bag is based on a 1911 vintage design by Margaret Morris, intended to illustrate the song sheet of "The March of the Women," a song dedicated to suffragette leader Emmeline Pankhurst. It became the anthem for the women’s suffrage movement throughout the United Kingdom and elsewhere. Activists sang it at rallies and in prison too: the composer, Ethel Smyth, reputably conducted the anthem with her toothbrush from a window of Holloway Prison. It was the feminist pop anthem of its time - sing it loud: in the shower, on the streets, or like Ethel, accompanied by a toothbrush (which you can keep safe in your new toiletry bag).

Let your first-wave sisters inspire you to demand women's political rights with this feminist gift.

Sturdy toiletry bag in 300gsm bleached half panama with a strong brass top zip. Measures 12" x 6" with a 4" gusset. Digitally printed on both sides, with black, water-resistant lining. and wash carefully at 85 degrees Fahrenheit. Suitable for toiletries and make-up.
