There’s a quiet movement growing in support of rocking the cradle. Cradle rocking can refer to support of building a state, regional, and national awareness of the “Cradle” of the women’s rights movement in the U.S. such as the cradle region located in the Finger Lakes region of New York. Cradle rocking also refers to an awareness of what it took to win the vote for women over a 72-year period from 1848 to 1920. The quiet nature of the growing awareness of the suffrage movement owes a great deal to the online presence of “Grandmother”s Choice,” which features, of all things, quilting. The research and love that goes into the quilt creations is downright remarkable. It takes many hours to quilt, so the thought of quilters focusing their attention on the suffrage movement theme is downright inspiring. It’s possible to subscribe to “Grandmother’s Choice,” even you aren’t a quilter. Everything about the web site honors women’s arts and a fabulous suffrage movement history.
