Jeannette Rankin for Congress

What a story! Jeannette Rankin was the first woman to be elected to Congress. It happened in 1916, when Rankin was elected in Montana. She also was a pacifist, and when she voted against entering World War I she ended up losing her seat. In 1940, she made a comeback and was elected again – just in time to be the only member of Congress to vote against World War II. She ended up losing her seat again. She was back again in the 1960s as an anti Vietnam War advocate. This 7/8 inch celluloid from 1940 has a St. Louis Button Co. back paper, excellent condition.
