Depression-era Broadside

Just found this Depression-era, anti-New Deal broadside/handbill entitled "Women of America, Wake Up!" in the "Handy Edition" of the Encyclopedia Britannica, 11th Edition that I'm slowly restoring.


and larger here.

It was produced by the Women's Rebellion, Suffern New York, Rockland County, Sarah Oliver Hulswit (Chairman).

"Pump-priming" referred to Roosevelt's New Deal programs "including social security, workman's comp, the Writers Project, and the like...plus extensive programs of public works (Hoover Dam; Grand Coulee Dam; the Tennessee Valley Authority, Lone Star Lake Dam in Douglas County, Kansas, etc)" (adapted from here)

Alright I was backlogged but that's it for today.
