Presidential Campaign Advertisement, 1920

Description
This advertisement from the 1920 presidential campaign appeared in the November 1920 issue of Needlecraft Magazine. It urged women to vote for the Republican presidential ticket of Warren G. Harding and Calvin Coolidge.
The 1920 presidential election was the first in which women from all states could vote after the Nineteenth Amendment enfranchising women was ratified in August, 1920. This ad appealed to the mothers among the new voters, asserting that the Republican candidates, unlike the Democrats, would not commit the United States to joining the League of Nations and would keep their children out of foreign wars.
