Title

Leaflet : Woman suffrage not demanded : the petition for it not honestly signed and not representative. March 14, 1896. [Circa 1896-1900]

Description

Letter to the editor of the New York times by author identified only as "A.P.P." The author accuses New York suffragists are misrepresenting the number of signatures gathered on petitions in favor of women's suffrage. He or she also argues that suffragists do not represent the will of the people as they so often argue because there are far more women opposed to suffrage in the state than there are women in favor of suffrage.

The letter was 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.
