Suffrage as a War Measure [cover title].

Suffrage as a War Measure [cover title].

New York City: New York State Woman Suffrage Party, 1917. 8¼” x 5¼”. Bifolium printed all four sides. Very good: a couple of tiny closed tears and a small loss to the first leaf costing one word on each page.

This is a pamphlet from October, 1917 as part of a ballot measure in New York to get women the right to vote. The text listed a number of states and countries that had already granted women the right to vote, pointing out that “this war has proved that women must serve the state equally with men.” It also asked the question, “ARE NEW YORK WOMEN GOING TO BE CLASSED AS THE ONLY WOMEN AMONG CIVILIZED NATIONS UNWORTHY OF THE VOTE?” The electorate answered “no” with 54 percent of the votes going towards the initiative, thus granting suffrage to the women of New York.

OCLC locates nine copies.
