Woman Suffrage Postcard, 1911
- This postcard celebrates the passage of full suffrage in California in 1911 by depicting the symbolic adding of that state’s star to a ssuffrage flag." California joined stars representing the passage of suffrage in Wyoming (1869), Colorado (1893), Utah (1896), Idaho (1896), and Washington (1910) on the flag.
- 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.
