Women's Coronation Procession, 1911. During the Women's Coronation Procession, held in London on 17 June 1911, women from diverse backgrounds came together to parade their political views. Pipers in national dress headed the Irish Women's contingent. Women from Dublin wore Colleen Bawn cloaks in emerald green and carried harps. The Colleen Bawn was a style of women's clothing popular at that time amongst supporters of the Gaelic revival. Costume and decorated banners played a prominent role in such spectacles and other activities supporting the suffrage movement.
