Our support of improving working conditions for tea workers continues. Why? Suffrage Wagon News Channel promotes Hot Tea Month each January. It’s because we recognize the role of tea houses, especially women-owned tea houses, in playing an essential role in organizing for voting rights during the first wave of the women’s rights movements in the US and UK.
