Woman Suffrage Stamp, 1915

Description
This stamp was manufactured by the “New Jersey Next” Campaign Committee of New York Suffragists to show support for and raise awareness of the woman’s suffrage movement in New Jersey. Women had the right to vote in New Jersey from 1776 to 1807, provided they held a certain amount of property. In 1807 that right was explicitly rescinded. Women did not regain the vote in New Jersey until the 19th amendment was ratified in 1920.
