Description

Suffrage postcard "Endorsed and Approved by the National American Woman Suffrage Association."

An seal on the face of the postcard shows a shield with a black spot on which is written "The Ballot is Denied to Woman." Underneath is printed, "The Blot on the Escutcheon."

A purple ribbon frames the card. On the ribbon is printed "Think It Over" and "An ounce of persuasion precedes a pound of coercion."

The ribbon frames this message:
