expand icon Abstract
The Women's Suffrage Collection consists of pamphlets, broadsides, and ephemera documenting debates and events surrounding the late 19th- and early 20th-century women's suffrage movement in the United States. It includes materials arguing both in favor of and against the enfranchisement of women, especially prints of some of Elihu Root's anti-suffrage speeches; two racist, anti-suffrage broadsides from the Brown Printing Company of Montgomery, Alabama; broadsides opposing Woodrow Wilson's re-election to the Presidency on the grounds he opposed women's suffrage; pamphlets outlining arguments to use in favor of women's suffrage; an invitation to the Michigan Equal Suffrage Association's annual convention in 1889, instructions posted at polling places for first-time women voters in Massachusetts in 1895; a Keystone View Company stereoscopic card showing the 1913 "Suffragette Parade" in Washington, D.C.; a women's suffrage handkerchief that includes speculative images about the state of the world 100 years after women received voting rights; and more.
