When the Woman Suffrage Amendment handily passed the New York legislature, the Suffrage Party lost no time in solidifying their base and quickly set to work locating additional voters for future state elections. They found that there were five hundred thousand new voters in New York City alone; two hundred thousand of them were foreign-born women.

This article is fun for a number of reasons, the first one being that it seems that nothing ever really changes in America and the second reason is because this article was written by a pampered patrician of the first order and when you read between the lines you get the sense that she would rather not breathe the same air as Italian and Jewish Immigrants:

"As well-born American women, we can never out-vote the immigrant; we must make her an all-American citizen and voter."

Read about the films that were produced in order to assimilate the 1920s immigrants.
