Title

Leaflet : Prohibition and Woman Suffrage. March 16, 1897. [Circa 1897-1900]

Description

Brief statement written by Mrs. W. Winslow (Elizabeth) Crannell refuting the suffrage argument that women voters would work for "prohibitory liquor laws." She reviews Colorado election statistics that appear to demonstrate that very few votes were cast for the Prohibition candidate, in 1895 when only men had the vote and again in 1896, after women were granted the right to vote.

Most likely reprinted for distribution by the Women's Anti-Suffrage Association of the Third Judicial District of the State of New York.
