The colours of this website are dedicated to the Suffragettes and were chosen by Emmeline Pethick Lawrence, a british women’s rights activist, because "Purple... stands for the royal blood that flows in the veins of every suffragette... white stands for purity in private and public life... green is the colour of hope and the emblem of spring".  The grandmother of brithish feminism, Mary Wollstonecraft, advocated equality of the sexes as early as 1790 and received heavy criticism for discussing women's sexual desires. May we always honor them!
