A Pamphlet AGAINST Woman's Suffrage
The text of the yucky pamphlet reads like this:
Votes of Women can accomplish no more than votes of Men. Why waste time, energy, and money, without result?
VOTE NO on Woman Suffrage
Because 90% of the women either do not want it, or do not care.
Because it means competition of women with men instead of co-operation.
Because 80% of the women eligible to vote are married and can only double or annul their husbands' votes.
Because it can be of no benefit commensurate with the additional expense involved.
Because in some States more voting women than voting men will place the Government under petticoat rule.
Because it is unwise to risk the good we already have for the evil which may occur.
