Postcard, "Votes for Women, Ohio Next!"

image for Postcard, "Votes for Women, Ohio Next!"
This postcard urges support for a coming (unsuccessful) campaign by the Ohio Woman Suffrage Association to ratify a state constitutional amendment granting women the right to vote in 1912. Ohio women could not vote until the state ratified the nineteenth amendment in 1919. The six stars represent the first six states to grant full suffrage: Wyoming (1869), Colorado (1893), Utah (1896), Idaho (1896), Washington (1910), and California (1911).
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.
