Title

Flier : A million women : appeal to the voters of New York for Justice. Empire State Campaign Committee. 1915

Description

Flier published by the Empire State Campaign Committee in advance of the 1915 election in New York contains statistics and arguments about women's suffrage, including the number of women who want the right to vote, the number of women already able to vote in western states, the political officials in favor of women's suffrage, and the types of women who want to vote (teachers, wage-earning women, housekeepers, etc.).

The Empire State Campaign Committee was a coalition of organizations, including the Women's Suffrage Party, the Women's Suffrage Association, the Women's Political Union and other similar organizations, headed by Carrie Chapman Catt. It was created to bring New York women together in support of the state woman suffrage amendment. The referendum was defeated in 1915 but passed two years later in November 1917.
