My Dear Mrs. Ames

A Study of Suffragist Cartoonist Blanche Ames Ames


Anne Biller Clark

She was rich, beautiful, and happily married, but Blanche Ames was also a political reformer par excellence who created political cartoons to defend the right of women to vote, attacked male politicians who opposed woman suffrage through political action committees, and pursued the right of women to control the number and spacing of their families at a time when birth control was anathema to the minds of many.
