Title

Flier : To the men and women of New York. Empire State Campaign Committee. [1915]

Description

Statement issued by Carrie Chapman Catt to repudiate anti-suffrage rhetoric that woman suffrage leaders are "advocates of free love, the abolition of marriage, [and] the elimination of the home."

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.
