Woman Suffrage Button

Button worn by supporters of woman suffrage.
The four stars represent the number of states in which women had full suffrage at the time it was made. The first four states to extend suffrage to women were Wyoming (1869), Colorado (1893), Utah (1896), and Idaho (1896).
"Votes for Women" was one of the most popular and recognizable slogans used by members of the woman’s suffrage movement.
