‘Tis timely to laud the women of an earlier generation who’d had it up to here with their lack of rights. Thanks to the feisty suffragettes, who put the walk into their talk, picketed the White House, and participated in hunger strikes and other forms of civil disobedience, the 19th amendment was ratified to the Constitution in 1920, giving women the right to vote.
The intervening 80+ years have wrought significant changes for women, including whether or not to tie one one…an apron, of course!
In celebration of Voting and Choice, I am giving away this vintage apron
The cobbler-style apron pattern is copyrighted 1952, the presidential election year that voted Eisenhower into the White House. 1952 was also Elvis Presley’s junior year in high school, which is beside the point of this giveaway, but for Hunk a Burnin’ Love’s military service (1958-60).
