Women's Suffrage Yellow Felt Pennant "Votes for Women"

Memor.

SUFFRAGE PENNANT circa 1910 - 1920. Yellow felt pennant, measuring 19 ½" by 8", with black block letters reading "Votes For Women". An attractive example of ephemera used by supporters of women's suffrage, bearing one of the movement's most popular slogans. The pennant's golden yellow color was the primary color of the American suffrage movement, originating in 1867 when Kansas was considering a state suffrage referendum. Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony then adopted the Kansas state flower, the sunflower, as a symbol of the suffrage cause. The piece is in very good condition, fairly clean, with no evidence of moth holes or other damage, and with the remnant of one attachment cord. A visually arresting and tactile reminder of the struggle and triumphs on the path to securing women's right to vote. Beautifully Framed.
