Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 19, 1920, Lethbridge, Alberta 'TAGE TEN THE LETHBRIDGB DAILY HERALP THURSDAY, AUGUST 19. 1920 [Woman Suffrage in U. S. i- Will Enfranchise WASHINGTON. Aug. tlon of the suffrage amendment to toe I Constitution cuds a struggle which] .fcegau in this couuiry before, the Col-' I ouies declaredv their indeiicajdence. It1 i vyll -1 women. "T Vtoman sul'traye first raised its' m "in Maryland iu 1047 uhen Distress Margaret Jlrent. heir of Lord Calvert. demanded a place in tlie legislature of the colony as a property holder of wide extent. And in the day.-of the Revolution Abigail Adams' wrote her husband Jehu Adams at-: the 'Continental Congress "which was framing tho laws of the infaut nation that, the i.mre and attention are not paid to tho ladies, we are de- termined to foment a rebellion and will not hold ouraolveE bound lo obey say laws in which ve have no voice." Organized work' for woman air'frago began m the United States with tho "Woman's nights Convention In Sen- eca Falls X. 1S4S in whlcu was t called b) Lucretia OJott aud Elisabeth Cady Stsntou, early leaders of Massa- chusetts' and New York, in response tq the indignation aroused by the re-' fusal to permit vrouien to take part in the anti-slavery convention of 1S40. From the date of that convention tho suffrage uiovemeit in the United States btgau the. fight that lasted seventy years and eJidei} with victory. Another convention .followed in 1S02 atSyracuse, X. at which "delegates irom Canada were present and it was _ there tha Susan B. Anthony assum- ed leadership of the cause to which the devoted her life. In 1S89 the ISatioml Woman 'iSnf- Irage Miss Anthony and Mr Stanto'n "at its head wus formed in New Yorfc and in the sanre vear the American "Woman Suffrage Association was organized in Cleve- land with Lucy Stone and Julia Ward Howo as Us leaders. At first JUferiug iridely In policy, tho National Asso- ciation working to put a suffraga amendment through the federal Cdn- 3 and Its sister organization bend- ing its efforts to convert the country state by state, the two associations later auited under the name the NsUonal -Woman siiffrago Associa- tion. The Association's drive fcr the Tote was led in turn by Mrs. Staaton, Miss Anthony, Dr. Anna Howard Shaw and Sir Carrje Chapman Catt, the latter ot whom is, now Its-president The 19th .Amendment The- nineteenth" amendment, -which oeare her name, was drafted by Miss Anthony in 1S75 and was -first inlro- I- uncea in by Senat- or A A, Sargent, ot'vCalifornia; and it Is in the same language that the new principle ot the- national law 'reads Section right o.f citizens, of the Tlnited Stales to ,-fote shall not be denied or abridged fcy the United States or by any on account ot sex. 'Section 2." Conjrrtss shall have power by appropriate legislation, to enforce, tie provisions of this article." -Tie amendment 'holds the record ot heing before the '.country longaj than auy other successful amendment to the Constitution. It was introduced aa the 16th amendment and has been successively the 17th, ISth and 10th and has been before every session of 'Congress since its initial appearance. During the. first 35 years after its -Introduction Into Congress the amend- njchtmado practically no progress and until seven years ago it had not.been debated on the floor for 30 years. But the camnnign for tho movement was slowly hut steadily gaining ground in the Militants Meanwhile Anthony made test cf the right of'women to cast the ballot going to the polls and Tot- ing She was arrested and couyjcted a'nd, though she refused to pa'y her was never Jailed. She became, however, the forerunner of the "mil- itants "who adopted the forceful tac- eacbusjetts, Texas. Iowa, -Missouri, Montana, Hi2 jiesota. New Hampshire. Utah, Cali- fornia. Maine. -Vorth Dakota, South kcta. Colorado, Rhode '.Island, Ken- tucky, OIVKCU. Indiana, Wyoming, Ne- vada, New Jersey, Idaho. Arizona, New Mexico, Oklahoma and "West Vir- ginia. Kri'iu Ha in this country, the suffrage movement met determin- t-d opposition from women as well as irtfu men. first organised tioo on the part of women manitest- od itself in 1S73 when i committee ot prominent women presented .a peti- tion to Congress "protesting against extension of suffrage to women." Mrs. T. Shonnap, wife ot tho Civil War hero, headed the- committee, of Premier Paul Pi'.ialeve of F.-aace who stopped here ou tais way from America to China Dominion Can't Make Many1 was quoted as sayiug as he dtseiu- which Catiiarine "Ward sister of the famous dlviue, Henry Ward Bcecher. was a pjember. Yur ions anti-suffrage organfzntlous came intu being subsequently, nntil thp Na- tional Association opposed to woman suffrage was formed in 1911 with .Mrs. Arthur M. Douse of Now York, as its "first prbsident his body, step by step, fought the adoption and ratifica- tion or the amendment Full suffrage is. enjoyed tooay by the women, ot 21 foreign countries In- cluding the new states of Czecho-Slo- vakia and Poland and tto ancient ca- llous of England. Germany and the Scaoidinauvian .countries. -Now that the 'women vf the United States have won the right ecfJiilly with, the men lo Uke their part in the government of the republic the effect of the wo- men's vote on the political life of the country .remains' for time to show. :Many -women are joining the old line parties with their folk but the National Woman's Party hold its convention :in June and will draw up its slatform for the coming campaign. First efforts probably will be directed to the laws on inheritance, divorce, guardianship and other laws alleged Lo .discriminate against women. 1'oinls Hut Have Set Up New Record ANTWKKP. Augr.
