AS MAN TO MAN | BETWEEN OURSELVES | CAN MEN REPRESENT WOMEN AT THE POLLS? NO MAN VOTES FOR ANOTHER MAN OR FOR ANY WOMAN. HE VOTES FOR HIMSELF...

Huron, So. Dak. South Dakota Universal Franchise League, [1916]. Broadside, 4-5/8" x 7-3/4". Tanned, else Very Good.

This rare broadside urged a "Vote for the Woman Suffrage Amendment, Nov. 7." The only 'November 7' referendum on this issue occurred in 1916. Tireless advocates for woman suffrage in South Dakota had suffered defeats in several prior referenda, beginning in 1890. The result of this one was no different. They lost by 52% - 48%. "Is it a square deal to ask women to be satisfied when only men choose the officials who are to regulate their homes?"
