Woman Suffrage Fan

Description
Paper fans were a popular method of advertising in the early 20th century. This one was issued by the Woman Suffrage Party of New York. The illustration is by Emily Chamberlain. The reverse of the fan reads, "Keep Cool/and Raise/A Breeze for Suffrage!/Votes for Women/Votes for Women."
This fan was made to support the unsuccessful 1915 Empire State Campaign for a referendum to add a suffrage amendment to the New York State constitution.
