Suffragette Christmas Card, England, 1909

This card was produced by the Women’s Social and Political Union (WSPU) as part of their fundraising efforts in 1909. In it, they are wishing their supporters a Merry Christmas and looking forward to women gaining the vote in 1910.


The card was produced in the WSPU’s official colors of green, white, and violet which stood for Get Women the Vote.

It took several more years for women in Britain to obtain voting rights, with property owning women aged 30 and over winning the vote in 1918. Women didn’t obtain voting rights on the same terms as men until 1928.

But the WSPU in 1909, had hope for the future, and just as we are today, they were looking forward to a new year filled with promise.
