A collection of women's suffrage badges and buttons from the early 1900s made by Alice Park of Palo Alto, California. 

The women’s suffrage movement was a decades-long fight to win the right to vote for women in the United States. It took activists and reformers nearly 100 years to win that right, and the campaign was not easy. Disagreements over strategy threatened to cripple the movement more than once. Arizona (white) women won the right to vote in the fall of 1912. On August 26, 1920, the Nineteenth Amendment to the Constitution was finally ratified, enfranchising (white) American women and declaring for the first time that they, like men, deserved all the rights and responsibilities of citizenship.
