Map, "Votes for Women a Success: The Map Proves It," ca. 1914

In 1914 the National American Woman Suffrage Association (NAWSA) announced success in its state-by-state campaign for voting rights. Nine states had enfranchised women, and NAWSA was optimistic that many others would soon follow. This map, meant for display at rallies and meetings, indicated the status of women’s voting rights in the 48 states.
