Her Hat Was in the Ring!


U.S.Women Who Ran for Political Office Before 1920


British and American versions of
"Oh! Where is my wandering wife tonight?" postcard

The British postcard below was produced by Bamforth & Co. Ltd. about 1916. Bamforth was best known for its "saucy seaside" postcards, but produced a series of anti-suffrage cards as well. The American version of the card was produced by Dunston and Weiler as part of their 12-card anti-suffrage set of postcards. Both companies depicted men as "feminized", and taking on traditional female work roles, if women became involved in politics.
