Description

Advertisement for the Liberty Bell Campaign by the Pennsylvania Woman Suffrage Association. This campaign was created to lobby for a state suffrage referendum in 1915. Suffragists commissioned a replica 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. The suffrage referendum did not pass in 1915.
