ing -women get something they want, hut It comes from a firm conviction
that the influence of women is needed for all humanity in all human re
lations. And whatever criticism may be piled upon the present Illinois legisla
ture, I can't help believe that there is a whole lot of good in a legislatura of
men that resists all of the terrific pressure, of selfishness and greed and
grants the franchise to women in so far as they can.
