Votes For Women, a vintage, prize winning poster by B.M. Boye, supporting the Suffrage Movement, created in 1911. It features a draped Suffragist, with the Sun and The Golden Gate Bridge in tbe background. It was created to support the 1911 vote for Suffrage in California in 1911. The proposal did pass! California became the sixth state to grant women the right to vote, nine years before the Nineteenth Amendment.
On Saturday’s I like to feature posters and graphic art and this week with the Inauguration of Kamala Harris, former Senator from California, as the first woman Vice President, this powerful poster seemed appropriate! Congratulations to Vice President Harris and The United States Of America!
