Title

Circular : The direct way. / by Frances Squire Potter. [Circa 1913-1915]

Description

Frances Squire Potter, author, educator and lecturer, refutes two common anti-suffrage arguments. The first, that equal suffrage is not a pressing need, to which she answers that granting women's suffrage will make addressing other issues "easier and permanent." The second, that the majority of women do not want the right to vote, to which she answers, "the enlightened State confers the privilege in order to create the desire."

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.
