Woman Suffrage Postcard


This postcard appeals directly to men’s sense of patriotism and paternal duty to support woman suffrage.

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.
