1915: Schoolgirls Design Posters For Women's Equality At The Fine Arts Club Contest (Colorized)
Art Club Students Advocate for Women's Rights
After nearly a century of work on the part of women’s suffragists in the United States, the issue of women’s rights was beginning to bear fruit in 1915, when this colorized photograph of schoolgirls creating women’s equality posters was taken. There was still much work to do, however, before the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution granting American women the right to vote.
The girls in this photograph were living in an exciting time. Just over five years after this photo was snapped, these young ladies could cast a vote in a national election. Let’s look at the final few years of the suffrage movement.
