THE THEME & LOGO
LOGO LOVINGLY CREATED AND GENEROUSLY DONATED BY MARGEE GAEDDERT OF GRAPHICOKC.COM.
"FINISH THE FIGHT!" first appeared on a handbill in 1919, the year the Susan B. Anthony Amendment was passed by Congress and sent to the states for consideration
"The slogan was an exhortation not only for women who lacked the right to vote, but also for those who already had it, since ratification depended on a national coalition, drawing resources from suffrage strongholds and dispatching them to the expanding flanks of the movement. " -Casey Cep, "The Imperfect, Unfinished Work of Women's Suffrage," The New Yorker, 2019
The art deco sunflower is an homage to the the time period when the 19th Amendment was passed. The sunflower is also the state flower of Kansas and was adopted as a symbol of the movement at the time. Yellow and purple were the colors adopted by the Suffrage Movement and appear on their flags and other PR materials created.
