Empire State Campaign Committee.

The Next President.

New York: Empire State Campaign Committee, 303 Fifth Avenue, [1915]. Broadside, 7” x 5.25”. CONDITION: Good, toned, .25” chip near top right corner with no effect on text, .25” tear from old tack-hole to top margin with no loss.

At the time of this broadside’s publication, the women’s suffrage movement was in its final decade leading up to the passage of the 19th Amendment in 1920. Prior to 1910, much of the movement’s energy went toward working for suffrage on a state-by-state basis. Listed here are the ten states that had already given over three million women the right to vote. If New York women became residents of these western states, the broadside argues, they would be able to vote in the presidential election the next year: “Why should they not have the same privilege in their home state? Are political rights to be a question of geography?” Although the women’s suffrage referendum failed that year, the 1915 campaign undoubtedly contributed to its passage in 1917.
