Harriot Stanton Blatch, pissed at the loss of the suffrage referenda, says “Never again will I speak from a street corner. Never again will I make an appeal to an individual voter. It is utter folly for a disfranchised class, with no party to support it, to attend a referendum. We can’t follow up an individual voter, but we can one in a legislative body.” And then she goes Donald Trumpish, complaining about recent male immigrant voters: “I call it tyranny and license for them to have power to pass upon me and upon the native born women of America”.
