Era: Post-Suffrage Era | Media: Postcards, Web-based

The Suffrage Postcard Project is a digital archive of suffrage-related postcards mostly from the United States in the early 20th century.

The project “looks at illustrations and images of masculinity and fatherhood that circulated in early twentieth-century pro- and anti-suffrage postcards.”

The website features hundreds of individual postcards, as well as collections of postcards on the same theme.

In addition, the Suffrage Postcard Project features a bibliography of reading materials on the visual history of the suffrage and feminist movements.

The project is the creation of Dr. Kristin Allukian, an Assistant Professor of English at the University of South Florida, and Dr. Ana Stevenson, a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the International Studies Group at the University of the Free State, South Africa.
