Standing with the Suffragists

Purple Sash Revolution

The Stanton Public Policy Center is a women’s advocacy and educational movement that works on issues of human rights and justice that empower and inspire women. It is affiliated with Stanton Healthcare which has life-affirming women’s health clinics in America and internationally.

Stanton Public Policy draws great inspiration from our founding sisters in the suffragist movement who heroically fought in the public square for equality and ensuring that all women would have the right to vote. Brave women like Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton were tireless advocates working and speaking out against the injustice of treating women like second class citizens.

Through their dedication, passion and commitment, on August 18, 1920, the 19th Amendment passed giving women the right to vote! 2020 marks the centennial of enshrining this fundamental right in our Constitution.

Purple Sash Revolution

Today, America is facing another battle regarding a great social injustice and human rights violation: abortion violence and the tragic impact it has on our nation and women.

Just as our sisters would not be silent 100 years ago, so we will not be silent on the issue of abortion today!

We unite with our sister Susan B. Anthony as she stood against the violence of abortion and declared,

I deplore the horrible crime of child-murder… No matter what the motive.

Purple Sash Revolution

Following in the footsteps of these extraordinary women, Stanton Public Policy Center launched the #PurpleSashRevolution campaign in January, 2020 at the March for Life in Washington, DC.

Wearing purple sashes and proclaiming the powerful message of “Equal Rights for Preborn Women”, we challenged Speaker Nancy Pelosi to allow a vote in Congress on the Abortion Survivors Protection Act, legislation which she has blocked over 80 times.

The original suffragists wore sashes bearing the message “Votes for Women” in public to draw visible attention to the injustice of denying women the right to vote and to create a powerful image for their cause.

In 2021, as we go out into the public square to stand against abortion violence and call for human rights for all, we are wearing our purple sashes!

The mother of seven children, Elizabeth Cady Stanton said this about infanticide:

There must be a remedy for such a crying evil as this. But where shall it be found, at least begin, if not in the complete enfranchisement and elevation of women?

Join with Stanton in this important election year to stand for the rights of preborn children!

The Declaration

#PurpleSashRevolution is calling upon the pro-life community to boldly yet peacefully resist any attempt to expand the violence of abortion in America.


Your Sash

Order a purple sash for yourself and your friends. Wear it everywhere and post on social media. The vivid color and powerful message of the purple sashes are a great conversation starter and public witness.


The Revolution

Join #PurpleSashRevolution at local, national and virtual events as we stand for human rights, justice and an end to abortion violence.

Through our witness,

the Purple Sash Revolution will create a powerful, prophetic picture for the world to see revealing how these innocent children have no rights or freedoms. As women, we cannot be silent on the violence of abortion, and our public engagement echoes the words of Nobel Peace Prize winner and Holocaust Survivor Elie Wiesel:

We must always take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.
