Title

Do it now! [suffrage handbill]

Description

Handbill in support of the Federal Suffrage Amendment. 

Congress proposed the Nineteenth Amendment on June 4, 1919. Ratification was completed on August 18, 1920.  


Text excerpts:

DO IT NOW! Give the vote to the women of every state in the Union by Federal Constitutional Amendment. 

BECAUSE--Woman suffrage is inevitable all the world around; few deny it--why should the United States delay? ...

BECAUSE--The Government which asks the women of the country to give their all to win a war for democracy abroad, cannot consistently deny them the vote, the symbol of democracy, at home.

BECAUSE--The woman suffrage movement is a part of the great struggle of the world contest for fundamental human freedom, and until the amendment is ratified by the legislatures of the states the suffrage campaign must and will go on.
