Leaflet : Women and the liquor traffic : why female suffrage would not aid the cause of prohibition. April 4, 1896. [Circa 1896-1900]

Description

Letter to the editor of the New York Times by author identified only as "E.S.C." The author argues that granting women the right to vote will do nothing to further the enforcement of "legislation aimed at the betterment of the human race," including prohibition and gambling laws.

The letter has been reprinted by the Albany Anti-Suffrage Association, more formally referred to as the Women's Anti-Suffrage Association of the Third Judicial District of the State of New York.
