Title

The Remonstrance. January 1909

Description

The Remonstrance was the official organ of the anti-suffrage movement in Massachusetts. It was published annually until 1908, when it was published quarterly. In 1914, the title was changed to "The Remonstrance Against Woman Suffrage."

"It expresses the views of women in Massachusetts, Maine, Rhode Island, New York, Illinois, Iowa, Oregon, Washington, and other states who believe that the great majority of their sex do not want the ballot, and that to force it upon them would be not only an injustice to women, but would lessen their influence for good and imperil the community."

This issue includes:
"An Anti-Suffrage Meeting in New York," reprint of Theodore Roosevelt's November 10, 1908, letter as a preface to Lyman Abbott's December 4, 1908, addresses; and Elihu Root's November 23, 1908, letter urging women to study the art of government.
