Title

Leaflet : Precedents and the women of Utah. November 7, 1896. [Circa 1896-1900]

Description

Letter to the editor of the Argus, written by Mrs. W. Winslow Crannell, Chairman of the Executive Committee of the Women's Anti-Suffrage Association of the Third Judicial District of the State of New York. Crannell is responding to an article in which the author makes the asserts that the fact that a greater number of the women registered to vote in Utah in 1895 than the number of men who actually voted refutes the idea that women would not vote if given the opportunity.

Crannell argues that Utah cannot be compared to Eastern states because of the different values that exist, particularly in the Mormon religion. She also provides statistics from states including Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Chicago, that support the notion that women do not vote.

The letter was reprinted by the Women's Anti-Suffrage Association of the Third Judicial District of the State of New York.

Text

If there is nothing to be gained by women from the ballot--and of that there is no doubt in any well-balanced mind--what is the country to gain that will balance the disadvantages and burdens, its imposition would imply? Either every woman of intelligence and probity would have to vote in rain or shine, sick or well, in order to counteract the vote of the other women, or the country would more than lose by their suffrage.

Let us retain confidence in the men who make our laws, Mr. Editor, and who vote not only for their own interests but for ours, as they are identical.
