Title

Tin blue bird hanger, Massachusetts Woman Suffrage Association with Votes for Women slogan. [1915]

Description

Die-stamped metal blue, black and yellow bird seated on a black perch. There is a hole in the top of the bird so that it can be hung.

"Votes for Women Nov. 2" is printed in black along the gold ground (bird's belly and tail). "Mass. Woman Suffrage Assn. Gertrude H. Leonard Theresa A. Crowley" is printed in black along the outside edge of the bird's tail.

This piece was part of the 1915 advertising campaign to pass suffrage referendums in four eastern states: New York, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey. All four states lost.
