Happy Election Day!

Before the 19th Amendment was ratified on August 18, 1920, American women were not allowed to vote in state or federal elections, let alone run for President.

This inequality in United States Constitutional law lead to the Women’s Rights Movement from 1848-1920 and the rise of the National American Women’s Suffrage Association (NAWSA).

Tactics used to spread the word and to raise money and recruit for the cause included sending postcards. Above is an example of a 1914 suffrage postcard found in Connelly Library’s archives. The artist is Letitia Maxwell, a graduate of the Philadelphia School of Design for Women.

Hope everyone was able to exercise her right to vote today!
