Title

Pamphlet: Constitutional Argument for Woman Suffrage by Mrs. M. Vater Longley. [Circa 1910]

Description

The author reviews sections of the Constitution to make the argument that the individual articles and overall document should not be treated as gender specific. Men and women are equally interested in issues that impact them socially, economically, and politically, and should be able to utilize their unique perspectives to create an effective government.

Margaret Vater Longley was a journalist from Cincinnati, and active in the suffrage movement first in Cincinnati and later in California. She was a member of the executive committee of the National Woman Suffrage Association and later became vice president of the Ohio branch. She was also editor of the Dayton Woman's Advocate. When the family moved to California in 1885, Longley became the Vice President of the People's Party in California and spearheaded the Los Angeles Campaign Committee for a referendum on suffrage.
