Woman Suffrage Postcard

Description
This postcard honors Susan B. Anthony and urges women to complete her work for suffrage. Anthony died in 1906, fourteen years before passage of the nineteenth amendment giving women the right to vote. In her last public speech for woman suffrage she declared that, "Failure is impossible."
The National American Woman Suffrage Association began a postcard campaign in 1910, partly to raise awareness of the cause and partly as a fundraiser. The cards could be funny, serious, or sentimental. Some employed powerful patriotic symbols and logical arguments to make their case for woman’s right to vote.
