Title

The Delineator : The Suffrage Spectacle in Finland. March 1908

Description

Pages 437-486, pulled from "The Delineator" magazine. The Delineator magazine ran from 1873 until 1937, and became one of the top women's magazines in the country.

Alexandra Gripenberg was an activist, editor, Honorary President of the first Finnish Women's Association, Honorary Vice-President for Finland in the International Council of Women, and a member of the Finnish parliament.

In the article, she recounts the history of Finnish women's suffrage and the events that led to women gaining the right to vote in 1905. She also discusses the process of educating women to take an active role in the political process and it's impact on Finland. "...we can build toward our political ideal--the Parliament of men and women, wherein fathers and mothers work out the solution of problems. This united 'social consciousness' already makes Finland possessed of the most advanced legislative body in the world in this new Parliament."
