Title

Circular : Have we a democracy? / by Susan W. Fitzgerald. [Circa 1913-1915]

Description

Suffragist, Susan Walker Fitzgerald argues that the United States is not a democracy because the power does not rest with the entire population. She claims that those opposed to women's suffrage are wealthier women who do not need the vote to improve their circumstances, and are afraid of the power of a true democracy.

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.
