Woman and the republic : a survey of the woman-suffrage movement in the United States and a discussion of the claims and arguments of its foremost advocates
This book, originally published in 1897, argues against woman suffrage as being antithetical to both democracy and progress. The author maintains that women can progress only in relation to the general progress of humanity. This book was intended to be an answer to the arguments made in the multivolume, "History of Woman Suffrage," published in 1881-1885.
