2013 Golden Sunflower Awards
The Golden Sunflower Awards get their name from the Women's Suffrage movement. Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony adopted the Sunflower as their campaign's symbol to help pass a suffrage state referendum in Kansas. Gold, the color of the Sunflower, was synonymous with Women's Suffrage for the duration of the Movement. Supporters wore golden pins, golden sashes and golden ribbons while marching for women's rights.
