The Rare Books and Manuscripts Library has digitized a unique collection of women’s suffrage postcards and made them available for public viewing online. The collection of more than 30 postcards from the early 1900s provides a visual record of the American and British suffrage movements, showing both pro- and anti-suffrage viewpoints from both sides of the Atlantic.

 

Women's Suffrage Scrapbooks from the Rare Books and Manuscripts Library

The Rare Books and Manuscripts Library has digitized two scrapbooks (one containing pro-suffrage materials, the other containing anti-suffrage items) including small publications, clippings, leaflets and other ephemera documenting suffrage efforts around the world from the late 19th century through the early 20th century. 2020 marks the centennial of the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution, which established the right to vote for many women.

Digitzing the scrapbooks, which are in fragile condition, has ensured that University Libraries can continue to provide access to the content without putting more wear and tear on the physical objects.
