Woman Suffrage Flag

Woman Suffrage Flag

Usage conditions apply
The stars on this handmade flag represent the four states in which women could vote by 1900: Wyoming (1890), Colorado (1893), Utah (1896), and Idaho (1896). Suffrage groups often produced flags, postcards and buttons with the number of stars corresponding to the states in which women had the vote as a way to keep track of progress towards and make the public aware of the status of women’s suffrage.
