Woman Suffrage Bluebird Sign

Description
This tin blue bird sign was issued by the Massachusetts Woman Suffrage Association to support a 1915 state referendum to give Massachusetts women the vote. On July 19, 1915, “Suffrage Blue Bird Day,” approximately 100,000 blue birds were pinned up around the state. The Massachusetts referendum failed. Massachusetts women did not gain the vote in until the 19th amendment was ratified in 1920.
