Suffrage Comic Strip cards pack of 8
Set of 8 cards with fern green envelopes.
These greetings cards are based on a poster design published in 1913 by the Suffrage Atelier, a collective founded in 1909 by siblings Clemence and Laurence Housman and Alfred Pearse in advance of a demonstration by the Women’s Social and Political Union. The collective encouraged artists to submit work in favour of women’s suffrage and sought ‘to forward the Women’s Movement, and particularly the enfranchisement of women, by means of pictorial publications.’ Well, they were certainly onto something – a picture is worth a thousand words, after all. (Although we’re also happy with just three: ‘Votes for Women!’)
