Summer of the Archives Series

Have you ever scrolled through the many items in the North Carolina Digital Collections and discovered a hidden treasure? Each week this summer we will highlight an item from our collection in the hopes of inspiring you to discover new-to-you materials in our digital collections.

PC_1618_EqualSuffrageAmendment19th_1920_ProSuffrageCerculars_Flags_001In our Women in North Carolina 20th Century History digital collection, there is an excellent image of a Pro-woman Suffrage Circular: “Women Vote under these Flags.” This circular showed that other countries allowed women to vote and it was only right for women to vote in the United States as well. This image is also appropriate for International Archives Day (June 9, 2015) because this year’s theme is democracy. You can find other blog and social media content related to International Archives Day under the Twitter hashtags: #IAD15 #democracy.
