Title

Flier : Women vote in the yellow states, why not in the state of Massachusetts? 1915

Description

Color flier speaks directly to the men of Massachusetts and argues that Massachusetts women should have the same right to vote for President as the women in the twelve states that granted women suffrage. Small map along the top indicates the states that have full suffrage, partial suffrage, presidential suffrage, and "man suffrage."

Massachusetts voters rejected the referendum, along with New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania. On June 25, 1919, Massachusetts became the eighth state to ratify the 19th amendment granting women the right to vote.

Text

Handwritten note on the back of the document reads:
Nature in her happiest mood gave us the flowers. She gathered all her treasures in from northern winds, and ice and snow
And moulding them by spring's wild glow
Lo summer gave the crowning art,-
Tho' every season had a part
Lo [?] the changeful human mind,
Whose humor varies as the wind.
Whenever [?], however gay
Some flower will give an echoing lay,
Lo wind these cheeful Christmas hours
I'm yours with love, and send you flowers.
Written by J.V.C. and sent to Aunt Kate with a banquet of flowers.
