Title

Broadside : Women voters Wilson opposes suffrage in Congress where he has great power. National Woman's Party.

Description

Campaign flier against reelecting President Woodrow Wilson, issued by the National Woman's Party.

In 1916, the National Woman's Party chose to oppose all Democratic congressional candidates on the policy of "holding the party in power responsible" for failure to pass a federal suffrage amendment. President Wilson, who was seeking reelection, advocated for suffrage in New Jersey as a state action. The NWP responded vocally by sending organizers into 12 states to lobby against the Democratic Party candidates. Wilson was reelected in the 1916 elections.
