First edition thus (some contributions previously published as pamphlets by the American Woman Suffrage Association.)
An important collection of pro-women's suffrage essays, featuring contributions by a virtual who's who of the suffrage movement: Ida Husted Harper; Helen Ranlitt (associate of Dorothy Day); Jane Addams; Carrie Chapman Catt; Charlotte Perkins Gilman; and others. Amongst the topics covered are: "A Brief History of the Movement for Woman Suffrage in the United States;" "Where Women Vote;" "Man and Woman-made Laws of the Suffrage States;" "Why Should Women Vote;" "Objections Answered;" and other essays. Aptly described in the subtitle as:
A collection of seven popular booklets covering practically the entire field of suffrage claims and evidence. Designed especially for the convenience of suffrage speakers and writers and for the use of debaters and libraries.
A physically small yet intellectually solid compilation of significance to the history of the suffrage movement.
