Flier from the Alabama Equal Suffrage Association, pointing out that Alabama is one of only 17 states where women cannot vote.

The flier also argues out that this lack of rights puts women in a lesser class in society: "Who Can't Vote! Children, Insane, Idiots, Aliens, Criminals, and Women. Will out boasted Southern chivalry still class the women of Alabama with these?" The back lists quotes from prominent individuals supporting woman suffrage, including Abraham Lincoln and Jane Addams.
