[1923 July 11].

1 negative : glass ; 5 x 7 in. or smaller.

Caption label from exhibit of digital copy in Shall Not Be Denied: Women Fight for the Vote--More to the Movement: Adelina "Nina" Otero-Warren's enthusiasm for suffrage proved crucial to the movement in New Mexico, where she became a leader in the efforts of the National Woman's Party to organize the state. Descended from elite Hispanos, or settlers of Spanish-speaking origins, she garnered support for women's suffrage among Spanish- and English-speaking communities. She later served as New Mexico's first female government official and made an unsuccessful congressional bid in 1922.
