Postcards, both personal and political, carry sentiments both for and in opposition to women’s suffrage in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
Using an assortment of more than 400 vintage postcards, women’s memorabilia collector Carol Crossed tells the story of 19th and early 20th-century women’s fight for the right to vote in her stunningly beautiful and revealing book, Vintage Tweets: Suffrage Era Postcards. She will talk and display some of this carefully curated collection. The women’s rights movement began in the U.S. with an 1848 meeting of reformers in Seneca Falls, New York.
This is your personal invitation to celebrate Women’s Equality Day, the 101st anniversary of women’s right to vote, by watching a virtual presentation by Carol. And you, in turn, can invite your family and friends!
You may know Carol as the owner of the Susan B. Anthony Birthplace Museum.
And perhaps you saw our article about Vintage Tweets in “Pedaling Toward Freedom,” an issue of The American Feminist published during the 2020 Centennial Celebration.
This is your opportunity to know more about our feminist foremothers — and the challenges they faced — through Carol’s collection.
Please RSVP today, mark your calendar, and we will send you a link to join us by Zoom on August 26 at 7 p.m. ET!
