Broadside: THE WOMAN'S BIBLE: Editor Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Carrie Chapman Catt, President of the National Suffrage Association, one of the Revising Committee, 16 inches x 9.5 inches, ca 1920
The 19th Amendment to the US Constitution granted all female citizens the right to vote in federal elections. This broadside was part of the campaign against ratification of the 19th Amendment. The broadside asks in large letters: Are you willing for women who hold these views to become political powers in our country?" "These Views" refers to the two volume book, published 1895-6, by Stanton criticizing the Bible's presentation of women as subservient to men. The broadside includes quotes from "The Woman's Bible" noting the page numbers. Within the suffrage movement, many women opposed the publication of "The Woman's Bible" out of concern that the book would antagonize not only current supporters but limit expansion of the suffrage movement. Overall condition is very good.
