Early 1900s woman suffrage memorabilia. Gold served as the dominant symbolic color of the pro-suffrage movement. First adopted during a suffrage campaign in Kansas in 1867 to mimic the color of the State flower, the sunflower. Gold or yellow was often used together with white, green, or purple. NAWSA supplied packets of suffrage campaign material for states to use in their campaigns, which could include ribbons, pennants, and suffrage literature. Top: Votes for Women ribbon (Library of Congress); Left: Votes for Women pin (Shanna Stevenson); Middle and Right: NAWSA ribbon and Votes for Women pin. (Schlesinger Library, Harvard University)
