Scope and Content of the Collection
The collection consist of one hundred and twenty-three picture
postcards and two greeting cards. The bulk of the postcards represent feminist
women and feminist activities. There are also a small number that are less
serious in nature, including English seaside postcards, postcards representing
magazine graphics, and postcards with amusing catch-phrases. Unidentified and
undated Victorian picture postcards with a "battle of the sexes" theme also
form part of the collection.
This collection is indexed under the following headings in the
Georgia State University Library online catalog (GIL). Researchers desiring
materials about related topics, persons, or places should search the catalog

The Friends of the Georgia Archives held a used book sale at the
beginning of November 2006. As the unsold books were being packed up, staff
from the Archives found a box of postcards primarily from the 1970s and 1980s.
One section of the box was labelled "feminist postcards". Staff at the Georgia
Archives do not know who originally donated these postcards.
