Women's Suffrage (the campaign for the right for women to vote) began in earnest in the late 19th century. From 1908 the British Women's Social and Political Union (WSPU), led by Emmeline Pankhurst, adopted the colors..white for purity, Amethyst purple for dignity and green for hope, which they used for banners, badges, flags and rosettes, as well as incorporating the colors into their jewelry..
