Title

Circular : The "Unanswerable argument" answered. / by Mrs. Lida Calvert Obenchain. [Circa 1913-1915]

Description

Reprinted from The Woman's Journal, Obenchain counters the anti-suffrage argument that the average American woman does not care about the right to vote by declaring that progress relies on a small group of people who set aside the opinions of "average people" to work toward justice.

The National American Woman Suffrage Association published a series of circulars written by well-known activists on the social, political, and economic reasons why women should be granted the right to vote. The circulars, along with novelties such as buttons, stationery, playing cards and other materials to advertise the suffrage movement were included in a mail-order "Catalog of Suffrage Literature and Supplies" produced by the NAWSA Literature Committee.
