Suffrage Banner of the Actressses' Franchise League. Funded by Lady Meyer and designed and executed by Clemence Housman the banner was first carried in the Coronation Procession of 1911. The banner depicts the masks of comedy and tragedy framed by wreaths and ribbons stencilled in the AFL colours of pink and green.
Formed in 1908 the Actresses' Franchise League was open to anyone involved in the theatrical profession who supported female suffrage. The organisation attracted both militants and non-militants.
