PETITION IN BEHALF OF EQUAL SUFFRAGE PRESENTED BY
WHEREAS- in the One Hundred twenty-six years of national life of America, no class of man has been forced to organize a movement in behalf of their own enfranchisement. However, American women have been forced to organize and conduct a persistent and intelligent movement, for more than half a century, for this enfranchise-ment, which movement has grown stronger with the years.
WHEREAS- twelve states now give women EQUAL enfranchisement with men. Illinois gives Presidential and Municipal suffrage. More than four million women are fully enfranchised and entitled to vote in this Presidential election.
