Title

Six Reasons Why Farmers' Wives Should Vote [suffrage handbill]

Description

National Woman Suffrage Association handbill, written by Amelia MacDonald Cutler

"Because the votes of the farm women would double the rural vote. Farmers have less political influence than they had before the civil war. Farmers need to get back their political power to protect their interests. Farm interests concern the farmer's wife just as much as the farmer. Farmers and their wives voting together would conserve farm interests. 
FARMERS, YOUR BEST INTERESTS WOULD BE SERVED BY VOTES FOR YOUR WIVES."
