Title: Out of Subjection into Freedom
Author : Marjorie Shuler
Date Created: 1920-09-04
Abstract: This article describes the final phase of the struggle for women`s suffrage, outlining the unsuccessful injunction against ratification in Tennessee, as well as the celebration in Washington following the official federal ratification. It names many of the women, such as Carrie Chapman Catt and Anne Dallas Dudley, who worked in Tennessee for the ratification of the 19th Amendment. The article contains two maps of the United States. The first is "The Suffrage Map in Early August, 1920," showing states which allowed women full suffrage, limited suffrage such as for primaries, or presidential or municipal elections, or no suffrage at all. The second shows "What Tennessee Did to the Suffrage Map," which was to grant full suffrage throughout the country.

Title: The Truth about the Negro Problem
Creator : Southern Women`s League for the Rejection of the Susan B. Anthony Amendment
Date Created: 1920-08
Abstract: This broadside, published by anti-suffrage forces in Nashville during the struggle for the ratification of the 19th Amendment, details racial reasons for their opposition to women`s suffrage. It claims that women`s suffrage must be defeated for the sake of Southern civilization, womanhood, and both the white and black races. It lauds the racial harmony of the South, and warns that giving women the right to vote will only spark political competition between the sexes and between the races. There is a detailed accounting of the population of southern states, broken down by race and sex, showing a white majority in all states except South Carolina and Mississippi. An enumerated list of facts purports that the 19th Amendment will create a Negro majority in South Carolina and Mississippi, where no such "real majority" exists now. The amendment will also create a Negro majority in over 200 counties in the South.

Title: America When Feminized
Creator : Southern Women`s League for the Rejection of the Susan B. Anthony Amendment
Date Created: 1920-08
Abstract: This humorous anti-suffrage broadside makes claims such as "a vote for federal suffrage is a vote for female nagging forever."

There is an effective political cartoon showing a hen with a "Votes for Women" sash leaving her eggs behind, telling the rooster to "set on them yourself, old man, my country calls me."

Title: Federal Suffrage Amendment Will Never Be Ratified If the People of Tennessee Guard Their Rights
Creator : unknown
Date Created: 1920
Abstract: This broadside proclaims that the 19th Amendment will never be ratified if Tennesseans guard their rights. It emphatically states that the Tennessee constitution probihits the ratification of any federal amendment until a new legislature is elected. It further claims that only the United States Supreme Court can declare that the Tennessee constitution is in conflict with the U.S. Constitution. Those who try to circumvent this provision are accused of being lawbreakers who should be impeached, and who are no better than the "BOOTLEGGER and the BOLSHEVIST." The message urges citizens to fight the suffragists attempts to override the Tennessee constitution by organizing mass meetings and circulating petitions.

Title: Negro Woman`s Resolutions for Enforcement of Federal Suffrage Amendments
Publisher : Southern Women`s League for the Rejection of the Susan B. Anthony Amendment
Author : National Association of Colored Women`s Clubs
Publisher : Woman Patriot
Date Created: 1920-08
Abstract: This two-sided broadside, compiled by the Southern Women`s League for the Rejection of the Susan B. Anthony Amendment, presents race-based arguments against the ratification of the 19th Amendment. One side reprints resolutions of the National Association of Colored Women`s Clubs from their convention in Tuskegee, Alabama in June, 1920. The other side warns of the possible passage of three Force Bills designed to force states to enforce the 14th Amendment along with the 19th Amendment, should the latter pass. It states that these bills would reverse the trend of the previous thirty years, in which 14th and 15th Amendments had been allowed to "rest lightly" upon the South. It claims that Southern manhood will defend Anglo-Saxon civilization and reject the Force bills to avoid reopening the wounds of Reconstruction.

Title: Questions for Mrs. Catt
Compiler : Southern Women`s League for the Rejection of the Susan B. Anthony Amendment
Publisher : Woman Patriot
Date Created: 1920-08
Abstract: This two-sided broadside contains the reprint, originally published in both the Nashville Banner and the Chattanooga Times, of an editorial and an article attacking Carrie Chapman Catt. One side contains an letter to Mrs. Catt from Mrs. James S. Pinkard, President of the Southern Women`s League for the Rejection of the Susan B. Anthony Amendment. Pinkard asks Catt to explain what she meant by statements such as "American women and men, white and black, should share equally in the privileges of democracy." She states that Tennessee legislators would violate their oaths if they vote to ratify the suffrage amendment, and demands the truth in this matter of "life and death" for the South. The other side reprints an article from The Woman Patriot, an anti-suffrage publication, which asserts that Catt defamed the United States by decrying the treatment of women with claims such as the fact that women cannot vote while aliens, illiterates, drunkards, paupers, criminals and the feeble-minded can vote.

Title: Woman`s Protest Against Woman Suffrage
Author : Tennessee Anti-Suffrage Association
Date Created: 1920-06 - 1920-08
Abstract: This typed petition, stamped by the Tennessee Anti-Suffrage Association, enumerates the reasons for their opposition to women`s suffrage. Stating their resentment at having "Votes for Women" thrust upon them, they declare that the vote will draw women into the evil of politics and degrade their sex. They believe that women cannot effect any reform without the approval of men, and trust their fathers, brothers and sons to act in their best interest. They also claim that women are better protected in states without woman suffrage, and that giving women the franchise would increase taxation.
