Title

Don't You Want to Reduce the High Cost of Living? [suffrage tri-fold]

Description

Publication of the National Woman Suffrage Publishing Company, Inc. 171 Madison Avenue, New York City. 
 
Cover illustration by Rose O'Neill. 

This pamphlet tells women that, without the vote, all they can do is manage their own households. With the vote, they can bring about governmental protection of the food supply. Women are reminded to be careful housekeepers. "Don't Throw Away a Scrap of Food." Some recipes for careful housekeeping are printed on the final page.

At the time this publication was printed, the United States was entering World War I. Rising food prices and limited supplies affected American citizens as food was shipped to soldiers and allies in Europe. Slogans and promotions such as "Food will win the war" and "Wheatless Wednesdays" urged Americans to eat less and eliminate waste.
