Presidential Campaign Advertisement, 1920

Presidential Campaign Advertisement, 1920

Usage conditions apply
This advertisement from the 1920 presidential campaign appeared in the November 1920 issue of the Ladies Home Journal. It urged women to vote for the Democratic presidential ticket of James M. Cox and Franklin Delano Roosevelt.
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. It appealed to the mothers among the new voters, asserting that the Democratic candidates would work for peace, keeping children from having to serve in future wars as many of their fathers had just done in World War I.
