Women’s Social and Political Union. Ilford Chapter
[“Justice” march banner]
Ilford: [1910]
This parade banner was made by sisters Dorothy, Maud, and Monica Harvey for “The Great Procession of Women” of 18 June 1910. The reverse reads “No Taxation Without Representation.” This march was sponsored by the Women's Social and Political Union and the Women’s Freedom League. Over fifteen thousand women and men marched peacefully through London. Banners served as rallying points and commentary, while also providing natural dividers to organize the mass of protesters. In making the banners, the activists used a traditionally female art form to challenge the limits placed on women in the political sphere.
