Title

War Aims: War Messages to The American People

Description

"War Aims: War Messages to The American People" was written by Carrie Chapman Catt and provides a critical analysis of the United States' failure to give women the right to vote while other countries have far surpassed America in this regard.

"Give to the world the final pledge of sincerity in American war aims. Give women of this land the honor other nations have bestowed upon theirs. Make democracy triumphant at home that the Republic may war upon its treacherous enemy autocracy without a spot on the national escutcheon. Do it now. Support the Federal Suffrage Amendment!"

This booklet concludes with a poem by Robert Burns, written November 1792:

"While Europe's eye is fixed on mighty things
The fate of empires and the fall of kings;
While quacks of state much each produce his plan,
And Even children lisp the Rights of man;
Amid this mighty fuss just let me mention,
The Rights of Women merit some attention."
