'It is Bad for Working Men' poster
Description: Printed in 1912 by Typographical Label in Warren, Ohio, in Trumbull County, this poster distributed by the Ohio Woman Suffrage Association advocates women's right to vote as the way women can fight for a minimum wage and combat poor working conditions. The Ohio Woman Suffrage Association (OWSA) was established in 1869. The organization worked closely with local and national suffrage groups including the National Association for Woman Suffrage. OWSA disbanded with the passage of the 19th Amendment granting women the right to vote in 1920. Many of its members joined the League of Women Voters, established in 1920 to help support the new rights of women voters. View on Ohio Memory.
