Title

Flier : A word to the wise. Empire State Campaign Committee. [Circa 1914-1915]

Description

Using excerpts from a pro-suffrage speech by Congressman Edward T. Taylor, of Colorado, where women were granted full suffrage in 1893, he answers common questions about the impact of woman suffrage in his state. These issues include whether or not husband and wife vote alike, if the criminal vote was doubled, if bad women vote, if it increase corruption in politics, and whether woman suffrage had done any good in the state.

The Empire State Campaign Committee was a coalition of organizations, including the Women's Suffrage Party, the Women's Suffrage Association, the Women's Political Union and other similar organizations, headed by Carrie Chapman Catt. It was created to bring New York women together in support of the state woman suffrage amendment. The New York referendum was defeated in 1915 but passed two years later in November 1917.
