Daughter is ecstatic making protest (7)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

dissent

Here is my best explanation:

'protest' is the definition.

('dissent' can be a synonym of 'protest')

'daughter is ecstatic' is the subsidiary indication.

'daughter' becomes 'd'.

'ecstatic' becomes 'sent' (I've seen this in other clues).

'd'+'is'+'sent'='dissent'

'making' is the link.

This clue was last seen in The Times

(Other definitions for dissent that I've seen before include "Disagree", "Express a different opinion", "Not agree", "Dispute", "Difference of opinion - snidest (anag)", "Express disagreement", "Snidest (anag)", "A difference of opinion", "Protest" and "Withhold approval".)
