Pendant by Benita Gikaite

“I have taken this Masonic charm as a symbol of men’s power and I have given it to women. Engraved inside the pendant are the dates 1897, 1903 and 1918. These correspond to when the National Union of Women’s Suffrage Societies was founded; the first Nobel prize was awarded to a woman, Marie Curie; and when British women first obtained the right to vote.”
