Item 48 – Suffragette Votes for Women

(SIDE-BY-SIDE) This year marks the 100th Anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment in the United States. We’ve made a lot of progress since then, but women represent only 25% of the US Senate and 23% of the House of Representatives, so we still have a long way to go. Find a female candidate you support and update a women’s suffrage poster so that instead of being about obtaining the right TO vote for women, it’s about getting votes FOR women — specifically, your candidate. Post the vintage poster and your update on social media, tagging the candidate and @sheshouldrun. Then, submit both the original poster and your updated version as a side-by-side image with the link to your social media post. (Do not submit a screenshot of your post — we want your original artwork.) – Inspired by Jrosebud
