Poster, "Woman Suffrage is Coming in 1917"

Summary

In the early 20th century, women and men alike joined the already decades-long fight for women's suffrage, or equal voting rights. Suffragists collected signatures, delivered speeches, organized public demonstrations, and printed flyers, postcards, and posters to rally support around the cause. Their efforts contributed to the adoption of a constitutional amendment that guaranteed women the right to vote in 1920.
