WILL WOMEN GET MAD OVER MRS. PANKHURST
AND SPLIT. WHOLE SUFFRAGE MOVEMENT?
BY WINNIE LEE
Tjvoman very often seems to have a larger capacity for words than for
ideas; she sometimes mixes her vocabulary and her principles; and by this
confusion do club members arrive at most of their frequent misunder
Mrs. Emmeline Pankhurst says that she comes to this country as a
suffragist, not a militant. .
Now she has been permitted to enter, suffragists who deal with ideas
are planning to receive her with courtesy, if not enthusiasm but suffragists
who deal largely with words are frightened even by the mention of the
Englishwoman's name, and they do not conceal their intention of ignor
ing her. j , ,'
Concerning this acknowledged division of American women who want
the vote.iAlice Stone Blackwell writes in, the Woman's Journal:,
"When we vote and unless all 'signs- fail we are going to 'do so we
shall have to learn to differ on many exciting things -without ''getting mad.'
We may as well begin to practice on Mrs., Pankhurst." J" '

Few causes have been too good to be "sacrificed to the tempers,.of individ

is to protect themselves from the ridicule of man by concealing their dif
ferences from him. (
And now Miss Blackwell betraysthem" to man by warning: them against
"getting mad" in the-present emergency. . . " '
The action of the United States 4n holding,her.at'a' port of entry has
made Mrs. Pankhurst a figure of mteroational'imp'ortance. It has made
her the most conspicuous personality in the -feminist mpvement of this
country. It has done more to advertise the suffrage struggle than any state
campaign, march on Washington or other activity ever arranged by the",
suffrage party in this country. v
In the light of so much publicity will American suffragists dare to be
little their cause "by "getting mad" and splitting their party over the-most
important figure in the laaies' battle?
By acknowledging this danger Miss Blackwell has undoubtedly done
much to cure it. At least she has forced women everywhere to face their'
