Woman Suffrage Postcard

Description
The postcard’s map illustrates the types of local, state, and national suffrage available to women at the time it was printed.
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.
