Women’s March on Washington 2017 Women bonded together sporting their Sashes and pink pussy hats!

Sashes, like many things, were once the badge of honor bestowed on men and only men. Men who distinguished themselves in men only societies, in warfare, and because of their lineage were once the only people who were allowed to wear sashes.

The ancient Romans celebrated female deities like Artemis and their depiction of the concept of Liberty as female figures with sashes. Eugène Delacroix’s eternally famous painting of Liberty Leading the People is one of the first depiction of a woman as a symbolic leader for freedom. Liberty wears the red sash that the symbol of the French people embracing democracy over tyranny.

The fight for the right to vote for women was bedecked with sashes. Suffragettes from across Europe, the United States, Australia, throughout South America, Russia, and even in modern male dominated societies used sashes to attract attention and promote the cause of women’s right to vote since 1700 until today.

One of the most poignant depictions of the earnestness of women’s desire to vote is a photograph of 19-year-old Fay Hubbard selling suffragette magazines to a man in New York City in 1910. She could not have voted before 1970 but her sash that doubled as a magazine holder proclaimed her determination to win her rights.

Suffrage sashes For Women’s Rights have become a thematic representation of women’s continuing struggle for equality in rights and income. The prominence of sashes worn by so many women in the 2017 Women’s March on Washington celebrated the history of women who fight for a better life.

A simple sash has become an emblem of a growing movement among women and men. The most common sash seen at the 2017 Women’s March on Washington was a simple pink with navy blue lettering that became a symbol of the turmoil that recent events and elections have produced in the country.

Many women made their own sash. Quite a few women wore a multitude of sashes in an exuberant display of the need to be heard and listened to. The Suffrage Sashes For Women’s Rights were so inspirational to women across the country that the Smithsonian approached one woman who came to the march in a bus from Pennsylvania and asked her to donate her sash to be added to the Smithsonian archives.

The sashes were a collaborative effort for fundraising between one of the leaders of the Philadelphia group, Jessie and Thirty Seven West, for the purpose of paying for buses and associated expenses.  Some of those funds were used to pay for the transportation of women who could not justify the expense at the moment.The Philadelphia group raised over $24,000.00 in one month on the sales of sashes purchased from Thirty Seven West.  They were priced for a fundraiser.

Women were clamoring for more sashes once they found out they were available.  Orders are still coming in for a keepsake sash of the March in Washington and other cities.  The sashes from this single event have become collector’s items.   If you want your own commemorative piece of history, or to purchase sashes in bulk to use as a fundraiser for the Women’s March associated event, click here.

A group from Colorado, passionately led by Heather, proudly wore white sashes printed brightly in blue, red and yellow in Washington, DC that were co created with Thirty Seven West.  The sashes were sold and raised over $2,500 in two weeks.  Brightly colored with the Colorado flag, the sashes also display the familiar official icon of the three women’s silhouettes generously created and donated by Big Monocle to be used for the purpose of fundraising and identification for the Women’s March. Women’s March sashes from the largest demonstration of the power of women ever seen in the world have become treasured memorabilia. The sashes from local marches are just as precious to the participants.

These sashes are not simply mementos of a march or a person’s participation in the march. The Suffrage Sashes For Women’s Rights symbolize the long, painful, and frequently deadly struggle that women have had for equality and recognition of all of their rights. The sashes will always be a reminder of a single day and an inspiration to the participants and their daughters to continue the fight begun by suffragettes more than 300 years ago.image1

Women’s March Suffrage Sashes were Hot in Washington, DC.!

January 26th, 2017 by Linda | Permalink

Women’s March Suffrage Sashes were a big hit in Washington, DC!

I’m posting this on Suffrage sashes as it was sent to me.  It’s sooo heartwarming and funny.  There are many stories telling of the kind of warmth and camaraderie that was the tempo and energy of the day.

Thanks Peggy!  A friend was reading this to me while I was driving. I got a long needed laugh from this!

Enjoy!
Everyone loved our sashes as well! I had only one complaint about the sashes, which is that the fabric had a strong smell. But from my story below you’ll see how that turned out to be a good thing.
I had purchased two rolls suffrage style sashes, intending to cut the ribbon into the famous historical suffrage sashes on the bus ride down to DC and distribute to passengers on my bus (from Ardmore, PA) and sell any leftovers at the March. For some reason the fabric ink on the second roll had a much stronger smell than the first roll, so we just couldn’t finish cutting the second roll on the bus so we had to put our suffrage sash making on hold.   I was worried that I wouldn’t be able to get the second roll of ribbon cut into the suffrage sashes, as I didn’t think I’d be allowed to carry the roll into the rally with me (because of its size) and I couldn’t find a place to cut the ribbon before entering the metro station. It turned out that no one was searching our bags, so I had no problem getting in and out of the metro station with the roll. But when I saw how crowded the streets were, I figured I’d never find a spot to sit and cut the ribbon. I managed to get to a location at the rally where I could stand to hear, but not see, the speakers, which happened to be right next to the back side of a row of port-o-potties, which, thankfully, never smelled! After standing in this location for several hours, I noticed that I had some room in front of me. So I took out the roll of ribbon, and started to cut my suffrage sashes!  Immediately, the person next to me offered to hold the end of the ribbon to help me measure and cut each piece, and after I cut the first ribbon, everyone around me started to ask if they could have their very own suffrage sash! I figured it would be a hard sell to the folks around me because everyone was already so decked out in march regalia, including pussy hats, signs, and buttons, that they wouldn’t want any more bling. But I couldn’t cut them fast enough! Within two minutes, we had an entire production line going, consisting of my (new) friend holding and measuring the ribbon, me cutting, another handing out the sought after suffrage sashes to be passed among the crowd, others passing around safety pins, and then others passing money back and throwing it in my bag. After all were given out, everyone was so excited about their new piece of attire.  Imagine that!  A suffrage sash making someone so happy!   (To be fair, I think some of the excitement was because they were just happy to have a diversion from standing in one spot for more than 4 hours!). Then someone near me mentioned that the port-o-potties were beginning to smell. I told her that I didn’t think it was the port-o-potties that smelled, but the colorful suffrage sashes. She took a sniff of her sash and said,”Oh, yeah, it is that. But I’m getting a nice buzz from this!” It was just another example of what I observed happening all day: making a positive out of a negative.
(Note from Thirty Seven West:) It’s very true that they had a strong odor!  It was from making them and shipping them before they had time to air out due to the tight time constraints that were available.  The odor generally is non existant very quickly on narrow ribbons like 7/8 and 1 1/2 custom satin ribbon.  That was our first experience with that…whew…it’s true it was a plasticy smell!  The orders were placed within 2 to 3 weeks of the march – lead time is usually 3 – 4 weeks though that is rare to take so long.)
In the pic I attached, I’m with my friends from Washington, DC and Atlanta, whom I finally met up with late in the afternoon so that we could exchange march regalia. My friend gave me the hat, and I gave her the famous suffrage sashes.
Thanks for creating such a great momento of a momentous day!
— Peggy
Next thing to collect for commemorating the day –                                 including ones for Girl Scouts!
Thank you, Peggy for a great memory maker.
