Today -100: October 18, 1911: You have got to become part of those awful people


Taft, in California, has some advice for the newly enfranchised women of the state: “It won’t do for you to say, ‘Oh well, we will not go down to those awful polls where those awful persons stand around.’ You have got to become part of those awful people and make those awful persons better. ... Meanwhile we, of the slow and more conservative East, will watch the things you are going to try, and follow you and avoid the pitfalls that you may encounter.”
