    1. making "The W WorldSafe for Democracy

      Echoing Woodrow Wilson's request for a Declaration of War in 1917, this statement makes the question of suffrage seem like a danger.

    1. SHE

      "SHE is responsible" Is this BOLD repetition on the page related to oratorical style? It would be interesting to hear this document read aloud, incorporating all the emphases of the upper case letters and rhetorical breaks.

    2. WOMEN

      I'm amazed at how many words are on this page!

    1. reaffirming its faith in government of the people, by the people, for the people

    1. the Negro race has developed as shrewd, cool, and ruth-less leaders as has the white race.

      "shrewd, cool, and ruthless leaders" Is this a good thing? A political necessity or virtue?

    1. song of the suffrage siren!

      Alliteration. See also "female franchise." I wonder if you could scan the first three sentences: "Men of the South Heed not the song of the suffrage siren Seal your ears against her vocal wiles"

    1. to help safegyard the food, clothing and hygienic welfare of pupils

      This sounds like an example of maternalism. Who else is part of this effort to safeguard the welfare of pupils?

    3. Compare this document to Amelia MacDonald Cutler's "Six Reasons Why Farmers' Wives Should Vote." That one's available to annotate as well. See the NOTES field for the link.

    1. their business

      "THEIR business" Interesting that this claim to partnership is right up front -- in the first item on the list. It's the starting point for what follows.

    2. working part-ner

      The farmer's wife is a "working partner" not his employee. That seems like an audacious statement for the time. Was it?

    3. Compare this handbill with "Teachers Need the Vote!"

      They both set up a repeated refrain.

    1. We don't mind using the terms Doctor, Professor, Brother, Rev. -anything hut Mr., Mrs. or Miss.

      I found this surprising. I would think using titles like Doctor and Professor would have been considered just as objectionable as Mr., Mrs., and Miss.
