Title

Circular : Voting and fighting. / by Alice Stone Blackwell. [Circa 1913]

Description

Alice Stone Blackwell addresses the idea that if women were granted the right to vote, they should also be able to fight as a soldier or a police officer. She argues that a significant portion of men are neither soldier or police officer, but still permitted to vote without question, and the standard should be the same for both men and women.

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.
