Do you hear the sound of marching hooves? Do you hear the roaring bleat of a voice raised for equality? Dolores is on the move. Never one to shy away from a tough fight, she’s dressed up to pay tribute to one step on the long road to justice for all: the ratification of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States–one short century ago. In theory, it gave American women the right to vote; but it left a great deal of unfinished business: women of color, even though they had fought for the cause under redoubtable leaders like Mary Church Terrell, Ida B. Wells, and Mabel Ping-Hua Lee, were still excluded from the franchise. So Dolores marches on--handsomely accessorized, of course, in the purple, white, and yellow of the American suffragists.

Franklin Habit’s Dolores #23 Sassy Suffragist Ensemble Kit designed by Franklin Habit includes the PDF pattern download, Valley Yarns Valley Superwash DK and Haydenville DK yarn needed to knit this outfit, and accessories for Dolores—brown tortoise rimmed glasses, yellow ribbon, poppy, and button pin.
