Title

Bread and Roses [suffrage postcard]

Description

Postcard with poem promoting Woman Suffrage.
Text reads:
Bread and Roses, by James Oppenheim
As we come marching, marching, we bring the Greater Days --
The rising of the Women means the rising of the race --
No more the drudge and idler -- Ten that toil where one reposes--
But a sharing of life's glories: Bread and Roses, Bread and Roses.
