Woman Suffrage


Universal Suffrage - Beard Cartoon

This Frank Beard cartoon shows the clear link between the prohibition reform movement and the women's suffrage movement. The drys thought it ridiculous that an upstanding, tax-paying woman was kept from the ballot box while male bums could vote. Although the Anti Saloon League studiously avoided endorsing any issues other than prohibition laws, many of its leaders and followers also believed in granting the vote to women.
