Votes for Women! The Suffrage Movement Book of Postcards

The fight for American women to gain the vote lasted more than seven decades, upending traditional notions of gender roles and forcing a reconsideration of the duties and privileges of citizenship. Recorded in photographs, periodicals, and broadsides, the suffrage movement inspired the creation of a wide variety of colorful protest imagery and art, including posters, cartoons, and music. The thirty postcards in this book—featuring images selected from collections at the Library of Congress—capture the conviction, energy, and creativity of the pathbreaking protesters who changed the course of American history.

Thirty postcard collection measuring 6 1/2" x 4 3/4". Published with the Library of Congress.
