Woman Suffrage Postcard, 1910

Postcard with an image of the Grand Rapids Michigan Equal Franchise Club’s float in a “Homecoming Parade” held in downtown Grand Rapids in 1910. Parades were a popular way for suffragists to make their cause visible to the public.
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.
