Title

Circular : Why the working woman needs the vote. / by Mrs. Mary Kenney O'Sullivan. [Circa 1913-1915]

Description

O'Sullivan argues that wage-earning women need the right to vote to ensure equal pay for equal work and working men should also want women's suffrage to protect their interests against the threat of cheap labor by women and children.

The National American Woman Suffrage Association published a series of circulars written by well-known activists on the social, political, and economic reasons why women should be granted the right to vote. The circulars, along with novelties such as buttons, stationery, playing cards and other materials to advertise the suffrage movement, were included in a mail-order "Catalog of Suffrage Literature and Supplies" produced by the NAWSA Literature Committee.
