Campaigning at Case: Presidential Elections,
1920: Women Vote
College for Women students had been part of the effort to win
full suffrage for women since at least 1916, when they formed
their Equal Suffrage League. The student chapters of the YMCA
and the YWCA assisted students unable to return home to vote,
helping them register and request and cast their absentee ballots,
Thus every voter in the University has had a chance to
vote without being put to any great inconvenience.
The Suffrage Club at the College for Women
sought the right to vote.
Below is the first page of the script
of The Taming of the Anti, produced by The Equal
Suffrage League. It features a dialogue between Herbert
and Gertrude Jones about the perils of female suffrage.
