Title

A School of Education For Citizenship

Description

This pamphlet written by Carrier Chapman Catt, Director of the National American Woman Suffrage Association, is advertising for a school of education for citizenship in Chicago. As described by Catt, "the aim of the school is to train women, already equipped with competent knowledge of Civil Government and Political Science, to teach new voters the ideals of American Citizenship, the processes of registering and casting a vote, the methods of making nominations and platforms, the nature of political parties, and the best ways of using a vote to get what they want, and to effect the general welfare of our people." The proposed educational program took place in Chicago's Auditorium Recital Hall from Thursday, February 19th - Wednesday[sic], February 26th under the auspices of the National American Woman Suffrage Association.
