Women Suffrage - Online Museum Exhibit

This is an image of a membership card that was issued to all women with plans to attend the Annual Convention of the New York State Women Suffrage Association. This card was significant because the Geneva Political Equality Club was an exclusive club that was only open to the most radical women suffrage advocators. Admission was in fact free, but without such a card, admission was denied.

This notable document expresses the overall goal of the motivational speaker, Elizabeth Burrill Curtis: to push for women recognition amongst the established role of men during the Civil War period. This address is spoken from her well-known father, George William Curtis, before the New York State Constitutional Convention. A key phrase reads, "It is said that the state belongs to men, and the home to women, but where, gentlemen, will we draw the line?"
