Flier : Are you a recruit? [Circa 1912-1914]
This flier, published by an unidentified organization, refers to an upcoming Ohio election where presumably voters will cast ballots for or against a woman's suffrage amendment. The writer refers to a new ally of the "suffragettes," known as "General Apathy," those people who will not vote and thus will be the deciding factor in granting women who do not want to vote the right.
But General Apathy has neither friends nor conscience-Although these figures indicate that women do not want to vote, and are saying so as loudly as silence can say anything, the very next turn of the wheel will throw the co-horts of General Apathy on the other side and the stay-at-home vote will mean the granting of franchise to women who do not want it, to women who cannot use it, and to women clearly unprepared for what is being thrust upon them.
