Pinback button : Votes for Women Victory 1915. 1915

Description

Blue enamel on gold pinback button with the state seal of New York at the center.

This button was most likely issued during the Empire State campaign to lobby New York voters to approve a woman suffrage amendment on November 2, 1915. The New York referendum was defeated in 1915 but passed two years later in November 1917.

The name of the manufacturer is inscribed on the back of the button.
