Votes for Women, McLoughlin Bros., ca. 1915


Women won the right to vote 100 years ago.

From the American Antiquarian Society, where this image can be found:

McLoughlin Brothers printed papers dolls from its earliest days in the 1850s. This sheet of uncut paper dolls and outfits, including a suffragette costume with a Votes for Women placard, dates from the 1910s and shows both the continuity of McLoughlin’s production, and its efforts to adapt its products to current sociopolitical issues and trends.
