Title

Clipping : "American Women Decry Sensational Suffrage Campaign." [March 2, 1908]

Description

Account of the disagreement between suffragists over the types of methods that should be employed to achieve their goals. Bettina Borrman Wells, of London England, advocates for militant methods to achieve women's suffrage and Harriet Stanton Blatch, of New York, argues for a more conservative approach through legislation.

Wells was a member of the Women's Social and Political Union, who traveled to New York City, where she formed the American Suffragettes. She wanted the American movement to be as public and dramatic as the one in England.
