Title

Circular : Why the housekeeper needs the vote. / by Anne O'Hagan. [Circa 1913-1915]

Description

Reprinted from Smith's Magazine, housekeeper, Anne O'Hagan argues that housekeepers and homemakers need the right to vote because of their concern for tenement house laws, safe and pure food laws, building codes, and other issues related to safety in the home and neighborhoods.

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.
