The black and white postcard depicts a triumphant Joan of Arc in armour holding aloft a sword and a shield marked 'Women's Suffrage'. Behind a large sun with rays represents 'The Vote'. Below on the ground is the defeated 'Prejudice', in the background, the Houses of Parliament. The postcard is captioned 'Then put your shields before your hearts, and fight with hearts more proof than shields.' The postcard is signed Poyntz Wright. This is probably a pseudonym for an artist who regularly designed propaganda postcards for the Suffrage Atelier.
