Description:
Suffragists used holidays like Valentine’s Day to promote the cause of “Votes for Women.” This card appeals to men for support for suffrage by suggesting that women respect and love men who support the cause.
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.
