Woman Suffrage Postcard

Description
“Votes for Women,” was one of the most popular and recognizable slogans used by members of the woman’s suffrage movement.
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. Cards like this one emphasized the femininity of suffragists.
