In 1911, California, with the passage of Proposition 4 (or Senate Constitutional Amendment 8) joined the five states, all western, that had already granted women the right to vote. 

That makes it relatively easy to date this poster: it references Utah, Colorado, Wyoming and Idaho as states that had enacted women’s suffrage, presumably the only states at the time. The fifth state, Washington, gave women the vote in 1910, so this had to have been printed between then and 1896, when Idaho granted women’s suffrage.
