    Woman's Suffrage Party Oval Pin. When Carrie Chapman Catt returned from Europe, she found the tactics of the Women's Political Union so strident that she feared that it would hurt the cause. She started a countermovement in New York City, the Woman's Suffrage Party, in 1911. This may have been the first systematic attempt to win over a major American city to the suffrage cause. The group was known for its large public gatherings. Catt later banned the color purple from her marches, fearing that it would remind people of the more militant suffrage counterparts. This may be why "blue" rather than purple appears on the brilliantly colored oval. Size: 1" oval.
