Emmeline Pankhurst. I wanted to show the fatigue - the long overdue right to vote - in her expression, and a faint, but very faint, smile of success.
Color scheme - colors that represent the break between new/old -> sunrise/sunset -> blues, reds, gold - with a touch of Edwardian design.
The Holloway prison brooch is in there, so is the Union Jack and the American "I voted" sticker. Her hair is filled with a passage from her well-known speech. Take action - "deeds not words"
