Title

Flier : Billy Sunday on Votes for Women. 1915

Description

Flier issued in New Jersey prior to the October 1915 election where citizens voted on a suffrage referendum. At that point, no eastern state had yet adopted voting rights for women.

The flier features several short articles highlighting pro and anti opinions on women's suffrage, including including evangelist, "Billy" Sunday, former city counsel Jim Nugent, New Jersey Methodist Episcopal Church, and the liquor industry. Anti-suffragists argued that women would crack down on the liquor trade.

The measure lost 58% to 42%.
