Womens Suffrage

               Womens Suffrage Film Clips

The Suffragettes Appeal To The States (Literary Digest, 1894)

This article tells the story of Susan B. Anthony, Dr. Anna Howard Shaw and the gang as they worked the state conventions in a effort to gain the right to vote. In states with large Republican majorities, they swore to vote vote Republican, in states with large Democratic majorities they promised to support that party:

"The State Woman-Suffrage Association should remain non-partisan and each individual woman should feel free to ally herself with whatever party she approves."


Woman Aviator Seeks Mail Job (The Stars and Stripes, 1919)

"Katherine Stinson (1891-1977) wants to carry letters up to Third Army". By the time Stinson (a.k.a. "the Flying Schoolgirl") had applied for the job of carying the mail to the occupying forces in post-war Germany, she already had the distinction of being the fourth American woman to earn a pilot's license and the first woman to ever deliver air-mail for the U.S. Post Office. She didn't get the job...


1970: #ME TOO (Coronet Magazine, 1970)

A report by a crusading feminist during the closing days of the "decade of discontent" (the Sixties) announced that those darn hunky revolutionaries of "the New Left" were not as forward-thinking as they let on - as a matter of fact, they were just as cranky and chauvinistic as their grandfathers. No matter which group a woman joined, Black Panthers, the Weathermen, SDS the Venceremos Brigade or the Balto Cong- you name it, the task of the women members was purely clerical and custodial in nature:

"I found to my sadness that the vision of the new society and the revolutionary consciousness didn't include women. Women typed speeches for men, they didn't give them. Women brewed coffee for men to drink. At the SDS convention in 1967, the women tried to put a woman's plank in the platform. They were laughed at and had tomatoes thrown at them. In the New Left, the men judge a woman on whether the sex was free.'... She called it 'a counterfeit Left, male-dominated cracked-glass reflection of the Amerikan nightmare. Women are the real Left"

These men were big on reading the blather of the underground press and you can read about their journalistic tastes here...


Inequality For Female Barflies (Pathfinder Magazine, 1937)

This column concerns a 1937 bill sponsored by New York State Senator Edward Coughlin. The senator's bill provided for the arrest of any woman who stood "at or in front of the bar of any club, hotel or restaurant licensed to sell alcoholic beverages". Coughlin held that any woman found guilty of this pastime should be charged with disorderly conduct. A few other states were also attracted to this legislation; it passed a year later only to be repealed in the early Sixties.
