About This Design
The figure of a suffragette chained to railings and holding a banner on which appear the letters WSPU, to the right a ballot paper marked with a cross and the words GIVE WOMEN THE VOTE, to the left the value 50 PENCE, and below and to the far right the anniversary dates 1903 and 2003.

The design featured on the reverse of the 2003 fifty pence coin celebrates the hundredth anniversary of the foundation of the Women’s Social and Political Union, a seminal movement initiated by Emmeline Pankhurst that campaigned passionately for equal voting rights for women. Mary Milner Dickens’ sensitively balanced composition conveys the determination and commitment of the pioneering group of women who risked public and private ridicule, and sometimes even imprisonment, in defence of their beliefs. The design features some of the most powerful imagery of the period including the WSPU standard, the railings to which women chained themselves, and the Ballot Paper.
