Title

Circular : Suffrage and soldiering. / by Edwin D. Mead. [Circa 1913-1915]

Description

Reprinted from the Woman's Journal, pacifist and social reformer, Edwin D. Mead refutes the argument that government rests on force and women should not be permitted to vote based on their ability to be physically defend the nation as a soldier or police officer.

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.
