- Button worn by supporters of woman suffrage.
- This button uses an image popular with the suffrage movement -- the Herald. The angelic figure depicted with wings and a trumpet or a sword, was created and popularized by Sylvia Pankhurst during the British suffrage movement. It was picked up in the United States by woman suffrage organizations, in this case the Political Equality Association. The six stars on the herald’s flag represent the first six states to grant full suffrage: Wyoming (1869), Colorado (1893), Utah (1896), Idaho (1896), Washington (1910), and California (1911).
