This elegant boardroom is named after Lady Constance Lytton. Though she was born and raised in the privileged class of British society, she went undercover as a working woman multiple times to draw attention to the suffrage movement. When she was imprisoned for protests, she used an alias to avoid receiving special treatment.
Constance is decorated in white, black and silver. In the context of suffragette colours, suffragette white represented purity and suggested that women could be expected to better society. Also, in massive suffrage parades, white-clad women contrasted with the crowds of darkly dressed men. It was practical too. White dresses were consistently in style, relatively inexpensive and easy to maintain!
