A notable figure in the movement for women's suffrage in the United States, Emily Pierson is shown here handing out pamphlets, most likely detailing the goals of the suffrage movement and what those who wish to get involved can do to support it. Pierson is demonstrating a common method of spreading the word at the time, since there were less options for communication than we are used to today. The speedy nature of word-of-mouth communication is illustrated in this photograph by the large locomotive on which the person to whom Pierson is handing the pamphlet it placed.
