Trim your tree with history! Our exclusive Suffragist ornament commemorates the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment with our adorable Suffragist doll! This doll gives vivid life to the time just a century ago when American women of many backgrounds took to the streets to secure the right to vote. New York women gained suffrage in 1917, and American women won full voting rights in 1920. Despite gaining the franchise, African Americans were presented with many obstacles to exercise their vote. It wasn't until the second half of the twentieth century that institutional and social barriers to full voting rights began to dissolve.
The figures in our Heroes of History line of ornaments are a holiday who’s who of the American experience. Trim your tree with historical personalities. These ornaments depict key persons in America’s journey from colony to modern nation.
This ornament is handmade by the disadvantaged rural women of Thailand aided through Christian Charities and organized by British company, Saint Nicholas Heritage Designs.
