Votes for Women

Saskatchewan women (🇨🇦) petitioned for the right to vote on Valentine's Day 1916 and got the right to vote exactly one month later on March 14th. Even then we celebrated Galentines. 😉
  1. To commerate the centennial the Diefenbaker Centre is touring an exhibit celebrating Saskatchewan Suffrage.
  2. Sisters United.
    Our colours were the same as Great Britain 🇬🇧.
  3. Revolution
    Was thought to be the only way to guarantee change - the more things change the more they stay the same.
  4. The American colours were black and gold.
    On occasion, we sported them as well. Such a stylish outfit for a progressive young lady.
  5. Vote. Vote. Always vote.
    One must speak up. Our federal and provincial budgets came out this week and there is much to say.
  6. A woman's place was seen to be in the home.
    Cooking and canning and cleaning. Can you name all these items?
  7. The sad iron was very sad. 😉
  8. Teas brought ladies together to plot and plan.
    I want those plates. The museum had a tea yesterday to open the exhibit here.
  9. I had company over today for tea.
    Before I started school I went almost daily with my mother to the neighbours for tea and cookies.
  10. A woman' sphere
    Is everywhere.
  11. I got a Votes for Women button yesterday.
    The way things are I might need it sometime in the future. (I really hope not).
  12. Sisters united
    To identify themselves through action and color. Sisters Unite.
  13. A brooch
    Could convey a message of solidarity without anyone needing to say a word.
  14. Saskatchewan women got the vote just before WW1
    Because the reigning government assumed that we would be grateful and support their interests and not necessarily our own.
  15. Vote always.
    Always vote.
  16. Remember all rights are hard fought for so we need to keep fighting so that our descendants can also enjoy these privileges.
