Pamphlet : Do You Know? 1917

Description

Blue and white pamphlet sealed with 1916 American Red Cross Christmas stamps, entitled "Do You Know?"

The pamphlet includes a list of facts detailing women's efforts to gain the right to vote throughout the country, and the reasons why women should be granted the right to vote in New York's upcoming election on November 6, 1917.
