Automobiles were used for campaign purposes in the suffrage movement to win voting rights for women. These photos are from the Library of Congress and the collection of Ken Florey, author of a book on suffrage memorabilia. Votes for Women campaigns decorated automobiles for parades, demonstrations and rallies. They were also used as speakers' platforms. This video is part of an ongoing series on Suffrage Wagon News Channel celebrating suffrage centennials. Women voters, lovers of American history, teachers, students, and voters in general will find these videos interesting and informative. For more about Ken Florey's book:
