Title

Flier : Is there any question about the liquor interests opposing woman suffrage? Ingham County Equal Suffrage Association. [1913]

Description

Response by the Ingham County Equal Suffrage Association to anti-suffrage papers being distributed by saloon keepers and breweries in advance of the April 7, 1913 election. The message was to vote against the woman suffrage question because it would ensure state wide prohibition and shut down businesses.

Woman suffrage was defeated in the 1913 election. Michigan women were granted the right to vote in presidential elections in 1917 and in 1918, Michigan voters approved the state constitutional amendment granting suffrage to Michigan women.
