Frances Alice Kellor to Individual Suffragists, [1912]


<Sent to individual suffragests>



Hotel Manhattan

New York City.

Dear Madam: -

The National Progressive Party in its platform adopted at Chicago pledges itself to work for equal suffrage. Making good its promise, women are being given a voice in its management and policy and representation on its committees and at its meetings.

The party constitutes an unparalleled training School for women who have not participated in political affairs, at the same time offering women every possible opportunity, within the party, before they have the ballot. The enclosed pamphlet clearly defines the position of the party on the rights of women.

We wish to enroll as many suffrage workers as possible as members of the Progressive Party, in order that such workers may have the additional opportunity to work for suffrage within party lines if they believe in this method. We need your suggestions and services as workers, speakers, etc., and wish to arrange to have suffrage emphasized at as many meetings as possible.

May we count upon your [cooperation]?

Very truly yours,

Frances A. Kellor

National Committeeman
