Women's suffrage had been raised in the Swedish Parliament several times during the turn of the century but was voted down. In 1909, universal male suffrage was introduced which meant that the only people who were not allowed to vote, apart from women, were men who were in mental hospitals or in prison. Around Europa, the nordic countries and england women actively demonstrated for equal conditions. 

This motif is called the Voting Rights Game and is a fantastic and strong illustration that shows the women's movement's journey and progress in the early 1900th century. The suffrage game represents one dice games and was distributed as a postcard in 1910 to promote women's equality and the right to vote. 

A selection of text on the image:

  • 1 route: In the year two hundred and two, it became clear to Svergie's woman: Unite us we may to win our right to vote.
  • 10 route: A national association is formed soon enough, it gives you four steps for your trouble
  • 97 route: At the speech of the World Congress, the man's hard mind becomes as soft as wax, a throw of the day of freedom is in. 

The Association for Women's Political Voting Rights (FKPR) and the National Association for Women's Political Voting Rights (LKPR) were behind the voting rights game. In the picture we see portraits of Carrie Chapman Catt, Ann Margret Holmgren, Karl Staaf, Signe Bergman and Carl Lindhagen as well as views from cities and places where questions about women's suffrage have been relevant. 

Sweden introduced women's suffrage in 1919, 9 years after this motif was printed and later than Finland (1906), Norway (1913) and Denmark (1915). 

Origin: The National Association for Women's Political Voting Rights | Created: 1910.
