Description
This card certifies that the bearer has donated funds to the National Woman’s Party. One of the ways in which both women and men could support woman’s suffrage was by donating funds to groups such as the National Woman’s Party to be used to run the rallies, parades, marches and conventions they organized. Even if a suffragist couldn’t support the cause in person, the option to donate to fund those who could gave them a way to still participate in the fight.
