Description

"The leaflet reviews the case for woman suffrage by federal amendment as opposed to state-by-state enactment of woman suffrage legislation. It summarizes some of the obstacles posed by a state-by-state campaign...Finally, the leaflet focuses on the black vote...It provides a glimpse into the arguments by which Southern suffragists attempted to reassure white male voters that Jim Crow laws in effect throughout the South would not be diluted with the enfranchisement of women". -- from accompanying information provided by E. Wharton & Co.
