Womens Suffrage

               Womens Suffrage Film Clips

A Salute to Susan B. Anthony (Pathfinder Magazine, 1920)

Five and a half months before the 19th Amendment was ratified, granting all female citizens over the age of 21 the right to vote, the editors of THE PATHFINDER MAGAZINE saw fit to pay tribute to Susan B. Anthony (1820 - 1906) - the woman who got the ball rolling so long ago:

"She drafted the pending amendment to the constitution in 1875."


The Mind of Susan B. Anthony (Literary Digest, 1894)

For those Victorian phrenologists who made it their life's work to map out the brains of American Suffragettes, Susan B. Anthony proved to have been the least complicated:

"This is a brain in which there was no waste - no superfluous expenditure. This is a woman with a purpose from which she never swerves."

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)

If you were a woman with leftist inclinations during the 1960s and wanted to join one of the many revolutionary groups that promised to "burn it all to the ground", you wouldn't be required to bring a lighter - that was for the male hippies only - the women were required to bring coffee percolators and feather dusters:

"In the New Left, some people - men - are more equal than others. The revolutionary girl is distinguished from her male counterpart by one significant difference. The male can cut his hair, shave his beard and step back into the society he condemns. In trying to help the oppressed, the girls found they wear a uniform that they can't remove anymore than the Blacks can remove their skin. They can't remove their sex - and the men make use of it only too well."

More on this topic can be read here...

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.
