Title

Pamphlet : A new fashioned argument for woman suffrage. Address at the college evening of the National American Woman Suffrage Association, Buffalo. October 17, 1908

Description

Martha Carey Thomas was the second president of Bryn Mawr College from 1894 until 1922. In this address, she argues for financial and social equality for women. Thomas discusses the increasing presence of women in the workplace and that without the vote, working women will continue to be subject to laws that were often discriminatory and capricious.

Thomas received her bachelor's degree from Cornell University in 1877 and that same year, was the first woman to enter Johns Hopkins University at the graduate level. At Bryn Mawr, she was the Dean of the College and the first Professor of English. Thomas is best known for helping to facilitate the admission of women to the Johns Hopkins Medical School in 1893. She raised thousands of dollars for the National American Woman Suffrage Association and, in 1908, became the first president of the National College Women's Equal Suffrage League.
