Campaign postcard, printed by F&J Cards in 1910. It was printed to encourage voters in the Federal election to vote for Vida Goldstein for the Senate.

Melbourne born Vida Goldstein was a champion campaigner for women's representation in the Australian parliamentary process. Goldstein was the first woman in the British Empire to stand for parliament; in 1903 she stood for the senate as an Independent Woman Candidate, where she received 51,497 votes, far more than the anticipated 500. She stood for the Senate again in 1910 (which is when this postcard was produced) and 1917, and in 1913 and 1914 she stood for the House of Representatives.
