Description

Yellow ink blotter with black print features a picture of the Liberty Bell in the upper left corner and the words, "Woman Being Call Upon To Obey The Laws Should Have A Voice In Making Them."

This piece was created during the Pennsylvania Liberty Bell Campaign to pass a state suffrage referendum in 1915. Suffragists had a replica created of the Liberty Bell, known as the Justice Bell. The Justice Bell toured Pennsylvania with its clapper chained to its side. The clapper would not ring until women won the vote.
