Le Suffrage A 2 Tours Vaincra La Reaction

1932. Colour lithograph, signed in image lower left, 120 x 79.5cm. Repaired missing portions and tears, old stains. Linen-backed.

Text continues “Scrutin a 1 tour [first round ballot]. H. Chachoin, Imp. Paris, 1932. Edite par le Parti Republicain Radical et Radical Socialiste, 17 rue de Valois, Paris.”

This poster was most likely created for the 1932 suffrage bill, which was defeated. After WWI, “it was assumed that the [French] government would give women the vote in recognition of their wartime contributions, and in fact the Chamber of Deputies passed a women’s suffrage bill in 1919. However, the Senate blocked the bill, and continued to block the bill each time it was reintroduced.” This impasse was finally broken when General Charles de Gaulle granted women’s suffrage in 1944.
