This rebus ribbon printed in 1888 is one of three such known designs related to Belva Lockwood's campaigns for President in 1884-1888. It was probably worn at one of the many mock rallies held throughout the country where men dressed up as women feigning to be Lockwood supporters.
Belva Lockwood, attorney, politician & educator, was born in New York. She worked for women's rights and ran for president of U.S. in 1884 and 1888 . Women did not get the right to vote until the 19th Amendment was ratified in 1920.
