Circular metal pin-back button "VOTES/FOR/WOMEN"; gold and black
The Women's Suffrage movement, begun in the mid-19th century, recognized women as contributors to the greater good of society. The movement's leaders fought for a woman's right to vote, a dream that did not become reality until the nineteenth amendment was added to the Constitution in 1920.
Due to ongoing research, information about this object is subject to change.
