Title

Flier : To the voters. Resolution adopted by the New York State Woman Suffrage Party Conference, Saratoga. August 30, 1917. 1917

Description

Resolution created by the New York Woman Suffrage Party in support of the government and war effort, and against the National Woman's Party picketing of the White House.

In 1917, the National Woman's Party, founded by Alice Paul, targeted the President and Congress by staging protests at the gates of the White House every day to garner nationwide attention on the suffrage movement and fight for a federal suffrage amendment. The nonviolent protests ultimately led to attacks, arrest, imprisonment and force-feeding of the women. The National American Woman Suffrage Association and its affiliates were vocal in condemning the pickets and demonstrating ongoing support of the government and President Wilson.
