Socks for Suffrage; The Yellow Rose-
The yellow rose was a highly significant symbol during the fight for Women's Right to Vote. State Legislators would wear a yellow rose if they supported the 19th Amendment, and a red one if they opposed it. The yellow rose on Febb's Boutique sock packaging is their way of showing our support of the courageous suffragists that helped ensure the right to vote for millions of women to come.
How one woman's words changed history-
In August of 1920, 35 states had ratified the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. With the Tennessee Legislature in gridlock, Febb Burn wrote to her son, State Representative Harry Burn, asking him to change his vote from nay to yay and make women's suffrage national law. Moved by his mother's words, he cast the tie-breaking vote, and in doing so ensconced a woman's right to vote in the U.S. Constitution. That strong woman shaped the course of American history, as well as that of our company. The Burn Family co-founded Crescent Sock Company in 1902, and today Febb's great-granddaughters are proud to bring you Febb's Boutique to celebrate the passage of the 19th Amendment.
