Title

Planks from the Suffrage Platform --as Stated by Mrs. C. C. Catt [anti-suffrage handbill]

Description

Anti-suffrage handbill uses quotations to make its case that woman suffrage supports racial equality and will lead to intermarriage, advances feminist views, is unpatriotic and does not support the war effort or the Constitution of the United States. The Equal Suffrage League of Virginia and the Equal Suffrage League of Richmond are both named.  

The writer of the handbill asks, "Is our Constitution another scrap of paper? Do YOU endorse these doctrines?"
