Candy - Suffragette Badge

My name is Candy, I am a blind actor with Rank & File. On choosing this suffragette badge, it felt almost as if the badge chose me, knowing I’d have an affinity with it; all the fights and struggles this symbol represents. Although I have been brought up in a time where women’s rights have been vastly improved, to the benefit of so many, the badge invites us not to forget how the suppression of women’s rights continues to be a reality for many across the world. It signifies the importance of women, men and people of all genders working together for a safer and fairer society for all. My hope is that anyone seeing this badge now can reflect on what has been achieved so far, but also be reminded of the need to carry on building from the foundations made in part by the person who wore this badge.
