1917 Flyer Urging Voters to Support Women's Suffrage in North Dakota

N.D. Votes for Women League, 1917. A remarkable survival of an extremely ephemeral object: an original flyer urging citizens to "Vote on the Woman Suffrage Ballot FIRST and be sure you vote YES". The North Dakota Votes for Women League was formed in June 1912, and was energized by a visit from the English campaigner Sylvia Pankhurst earlier that same year, in February. In 1917, women in the state gained the right to vote in local elections; by 1919, the state had voted to ratify the 19th Amendment, and women were soon able to vote in federal elections.

Measures 6" by 9"; verso blank. Toned, else very fine.
