Paper cup : Drink to the success of the Empire State Campaign. 1915

Description

One of the many novelties created by the Empire State Campaign Committee to urge support for the 1915 ballot initiative in New York.

The Empire State Campaign Committee was a coalition of organizations, including the Women's Suffrage Party, the Women's Suffrage Association, the Women's Political Union and other similar organizations, headed by Carrie Chapman Catt. It was created to bring New York women together in support of the state woman suffrage amendment. The New York referendum was defeated in 1915 but passed two years later in November 1917.
