Fascinating anti-women's suffrage ad from 1915.

(click ad, via) Copy tidbit: "Woman Suffrage is part of the Feminist Movement, and is wanted by every Socialist, every I.W.W., and every Mormon." That pretty much sums up Tea Party wackos' description of Obama. Previously: 1912—Danger! Women's Suffrage would Double the Irresponsible Vote.

Protect women from politics!
Looking at the current climate, the whole bloody world needs protecting from politics these days.

I love this. I'm going to share your blog/post on my Facebook page - Me and My 1000 Girlfriends.

this is great - and kinda depressing, to see how women fought against their own rights. But it's really instructive in how change happens (with backsteps, and betrayals, and yet it still happens if we all fight hard enough, together.)

do you know the source - which paper, etc? Would love to share it with my readers, too!

Namaste,
Lee
