Woman Suffrage Postcard

image for Woman Suffrage Postcard
Description
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.
