Description

Campaign literature that uses a popular slogan, "the new look" as a way to encourage women to vote. The pamphlet contains photographs and facts about the conditions for families before and after women had the right to vote, outlines the work still to be done to improve conditions and provides information on how women can do their part by voting in elections and educating their husbands on who to vote for, and using the local political action committee as a resource.
