Title

Pamphlet : Suffrage and anti-suffrage; a woman worker's appeal. 1909

Description

Reprinted from The National Review, 52, January 1909.

Simkins makes the argument that it would be unfair to place the additional burden of voting on working women: "A twenty years experience of steady work has led her to the conclusion that it will be a cruelty to impose on women of her class the triple burden of wage-earning, housekeeping, and political responsibility. What such women workers want when their present double task is accomplished is not political excitement, but rest and quiet."
