The campaign for women’s right to vote spanned more than seven decades, reaching its peak in the decade before the Nineteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution was made law in 1920. Part of an international movement, American suffragists were inspired by the tactics used by their British counterparts, but in both countries, activists faced strong opposition. Suffrage organizations published their own posters and periodicals to counter the magazine covers and other imagery--including sheet music covers--published by those opposed to women’s suffrage.
