'Let Ohio Women Vote' postcard
Description: Postcard with a color image of the Seal of Ohio with a woman's face in the center. The woman's face is framed by the rising sun and the slogan "Let Ohio Women Vote." This original illustration is identified in the September 1912 issue of Life and Labor (published by the National Women's Trade Union League) as a poster done by Cornelia Cassady-Davis of Cincinnati for the "Votes for Women" campaign. Born just east of Cincinnati in Cleves, Ohio, Cassady-Davis was a graduate of the Cincinnati Academy of Art, and later taught there from 1891-1897. The postcard was sent from Elizabeth J. Hauser to Mrs. C. L. Martzolff in Athens, Ohio, in 1915. On the back of the postcard, Mrs. Hauser has writes "I am sending you papers about the plan of organization [illegible]." Born in Girard, Ohio, Hauser was a suffragist who served as the director of the Cuyahoga County Women's Suffrage Association. After the passage of the 19th Amendment in 1919, Hauser and other prominent suffragists formed the League of Women Voters. View on Ohio Memory.
