      The Flyer on the flag mentions:
      Rev Anna Shaw
      Mrs. Carrie Chapman Catt (who somewhat resembles the person on the left in this picture)
      And quite possibly mentioned Max Eastman

      Same women as this photo and others--just a different pose:


      Jessie Stubbs, Rosalie Jones, and Ida Craft (in that order, here).

      Thanks for deciphering the flyer! We'll add that info and the women's names, then reload the description.

      Speaking at the suffrage meeting advertised on the flier seen here, Carrie Chapman Catt has a close connection to International Women's Day (IWD). In 1904, she was elected to the first board of the International Woman Suffrage Alliance at a meeting in Berlin and reelected in 1906 in Copenhagen. She promoted suffrage for women in her travels around the world in 1911-1912, stopping in South and East Africa, the Middle East, India, China, and many other places.
