Title

Leaflet : Do not want the ballot : a correspondent who is opposed to making them voters. March 22, 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 if granted the right to vote, women would not use it and it would only cause them physical discomfort. He or she also says that women's votes will do nothing to improve conditions in the country because women would most likely vote the same way as their husbands or fathers.

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.
