Tin badge designed by Sylvia Pankhurst for the suffragette campaign. Incorporating the purple, white and green colour-scheme of the Women's Social and Political Union, the design depicts a woman breaking free: stepping through a gate with iron bars and heavy chains, carrying a 'Votes for Women' streamer.

By 1909 the Women's Social and Political Union was commissioning a wide range of badges, brooches, pendants, pins and hatpins. These raised funds for the campaign and helped to promote the Votes for Women cause.
