The patterns and colors illustrate the status of the states in regards to women's suffrage. White states had full women's suffrage. Shaded states had partial women's suffrage. Dotted states had presidential, partial county and state women's suffrage. Black states have no women's suffrage. There are also colored stickers on some of the states with dates. A few states have been updated with shading or black underneath a white paper cut to fit the state pasted on top.
