Rose Cecil O' Neill

F. De Maria & Co. N.Y.

This postcard shows suffragist Rose Cecil O' Neill, to the left, and her sister Callista O' Neill promoting the Nineteenth Amendment to grant women the right to vote in the Untied States. A professional illustrator and writer by trade, Rose also became the first female cartoonist in the United States. The comic strip consisted of a baby with a round face and body known as "Kewpie." Her illustrations appeared in a number of magazines from Ladies Home Journal to Good Housekeeping. The success from this character also helped Rose to use "Kewpie" as a champion for women's right to vote. She drew posters and cartoons showing the cupid babies wearing suffrage sashes and marching in parades. After the Nineteenth Amendment was ratified on August 18, 1920, Rose continued to use her art to advocated for women's causes.
