Ten Reasons Why Women Don’t Want the Right to Vote

Ten Reasons Why the Great Majority of Women Do Not Want the Ballot.

  • BECAUSE they have not lost faith in their fathers, husbands, sons, and brothers, who afford full protection to the community, there being no call for women to relieve them of the task.
  • BECAUSE women realize that when they become voters they will in consequence have to serve as jurors, and be compelled to hear all the repugnant details incident to murder trials and trials for other crimes disclosing unspeakable wickedness. Jury service is abhorrent to every normal woman.
