She contributed over 150 cartoons to the suffrage campaign, mostly original drawings created for The Suffragist, the weekly publication of the National Woman's Party from 1913 until 1921, and later its successor, Equal Rights, published from 1923 until 1954. Allender gave the majority of the cartoons she drew during this time to the National Woman's Party.
