To celebrate the Centennial of the Women’s Suffrage movement, the Archives Partnership Trust planned a special commemorative event by hosting a panel of notable women to discuss the history of the movement and the issues that women still face today. In an attempt to get Oprah Winfrey to moderate the event, the client wanted to develop a truly unique proposal to present to her. We found an antique ballot box and designed a vintage-looking label similar to one we had found researching suffrage ballot boxes. Inside the box we placed a copy of the proposal which was designed with a vintage parchment background, a replica of the Elizabeth Cady Stanton speech that was going to be read at the event, and a series of “ballots”. Each of the ballots contained either a historical accomplishment in the suffrage movement (in which the ballot was checked) or an issue women still struggle with today (in which case the ballot remained unchecked), to show what women have accomplished and how far they still have to go in gaining true equality. Unfortunately Oprah was unable to attend.
