Forty-fourth Annual Scs
) sion to Be Held
) Nov. 21-26.
THE announcement that the forty
fourth annual convention of the
National Woman Suffrage asso
ciation will bo held in Phila
delphia Nov. 21-20, Inclusive, brings
with it -tho recollection that a Phila
delphia woman, Lucrctla Mott, was
ono of the four women who called the
first oqual rights convention ever held
In tho world. Tho place chosen for
the unique gathering was' Seneca
Tails, N. Y., tho homo of Elizabeth
Cndy Stanton; the time was July,
18 IS. sixty-four years ago.
The cause of woman suffrago in the
United StuU-s took definite shape when
the nntl-slavcr7 n.;,iti!tlon was at Its
height In 1828 tho Orlmlte sisters,
daughters of a distinguished judge of
the supreme court of South Carolina,
becoming imbued with the spirit of
freedom, emancipated their slaves
came north and by their Impassioned
speeches succeeded In arousing public
sentiment in behalf of abolition. Gar
rlson soon entered the coutest, and tin
American Anti-slavery society 'wat
formed. From the beginning women were
prominently Identified with the move
ment, and the names of Lucretia Mott
and many others soon became wldel
known. The whole question of hu
man rights was thoroughly canvass
ed, and women soon began to take
part in the business meetings and
public debates, which aroused violent
opposition, and In 1839 the society was
rent in twain. The half that sustain
ed tho rights of the women comprised
Garrison, Phillips, Pierpout, Plllsbury,
Thompson, Foster, Stanton, Gcrrit
Smith nearly all those who carried
the abolition to success.
The question of women's right tc
take public part In the movement was
carried to the world's anti-slavery
convention In London In 1840, which
refused to recognize the women dele
gates from the United States, who In
cluded Lucretla Mott and Mrs. Wen
dell Phillips. It was at this time that
Mrs. Mott nnd Mrs. Elizabeth Cady
Stanton, a bride, decided that on their
return to tho United States they would
organize a movement especially for
the rights of women.
Soon there began to bo signs of an
awakening on the part of women in
various sections of the Union. Mnr
garet Fuller, one of a coterie of think
ers in Boston, In her writings and semi
public addresses In 1840 demanded po
Htlcal rights for women. In 1845 Itev.
Samuel J. May, a leader of thought In
New York state, preached a sermon In
his church in Syracuse declaring that
the wrongs of women could not bo
redressed until they had political pow
er. In 1847 Lucy Stone, just graduat
ed from Oberlln college, began speak
ing on woman's rights. Soon after
ward Lucretla Mott published a "Dis
course on Woman" in answer to a lec
ture which Itlchard H. Dana was giv
ing in many cities ridiculing the idea
of political equality for women. In
many parts of the country women be
gan to give lectures for the purpose of
promoting the rights of women.
It was not until 1848, however, that
the resolution made by Lucretla Mott
and Elizabeth Cady Stanton in London
wns put into effoct In the summer of
that year they met lit the home of Mrs.
Mott's sister, Mrs. Martha C. Wright,
in Auburn, N. Y., and decided to carry
out tho long cherished idea.
The following notice was circulated:
WOMAN'S niOHTB CONVENTION.
A convention to discuss the social, civil
and religious condition and rlehts of wo
men will bo held In the Wesleyan chnpc,
Beneca. FallB, N. T., on Wednesday and
Thursday, the 19th and 20th of July, cur
rent, commencing at 10 o'clock a. m. During-
the first day the meeting will be ex
clusively for women, who are earnestly
Invited to attend. Tho public generally
Is Invited to attend on tho second day.
when Lucretla Mott of Philadelphia and
other ladtos and gentlemen will address
When tho eventful day arrived the
church was filled with people, curious
and eager to know what the meeting
was for. Tho presiding officer of this
the first womau'8 rights convention
was James Mott, the husband of Lu
cretla Mott. Tho declaration of prin
ciples and resolutions was discussed,
tho latter adoptod and tho former
signed by 100 men and women. There
was so much interest in the conven
tion that it adjourned to meet In
Itochester in August of tho same year.
Ilere tho Unitarian church was crowd
ed, and It Is said that many fine ad
dresses wore made by men and women.
Among tho signers of tho declaration
were Susan B. Anthony's father,
mother and sister, but she herself was
teaching In the academy nt Canajo
harle, N. Y., and sho knew nothing of
Miss Anthonv nnd Mlsq Ktimtnn
for tho first tlino in 1851, and Inane-!
dlately afterward organized work for
woman suffrage began to take shape
in New York. In the following year,
1852, a convention was arranged to
take ploce in Syracuse, nnd the dele
Sates present were from eight state?
md Canada. This event brought to the
First Session Was Held
In 1848Sketch of
front the wonderful galaxy of women
whose names were henceforth connect
ed with the movement nnd Inaugurated
Susan B. Anthony's fifty-four yours'
leadership. From that time until the
present, with the interim of the civil
war, the work has actively continued
In tlio state of New York.
In New York are situated the head
quarters of the National Woman Suf
frage association, of which Hev. Anna
Howard Shaw Is president; the New
York State Womnn Suffrage associa
tion, with Miss Harriet May Mills as
president; the Woman Suffrage party,
organized by Mrs. Chapman Catt three
years ago and grown to a membership
of more than 00,000; tho Woman's So
cial nnd Polltlcnl union, whose presi
dent Is -Mrs. Harriot Stanton Blotch,
daughter of Elizabeth Cady Stanton;
the Political Equality association, or
ganized by Mrs. Oliver H. P. Belmont:
the Equal Franchise society, founded
by Mrs. Clarence Mackoy, and the
Men's League For Woman Suffrage,
whose membership Includes business
nnd professional men.
National In Aspect.
In 1830, during the anti-slavery con
vention In Boston, a few women in at
tendance decided to call n convention
to discuss exclusively the rights of
women. The nrrangements were made
by Lucy Stone nnd others, nnd from
the holding of tlds meeting the wo
man's rights movement may be said to
have assumed a national aspect. Nine
states were represented by the speak
ers, and among them were Garrison.
Plllsbury, Foster, Burleigh, Douglas
and Clmnning, nnd letters were read
from Emerson, Alcott, Wlilttier, Gcrrit
Smith, Joshua It. Giddings and many
other well known reformers. A na
tional committee wns formed, under
whose management conventions wen
held annually in various cities, and
the question of woman suffrage has
ever since been a leading ono In Mas
sachusetts. An account of this Mas
sachusetts convention lu the Westmin
ster Bevlew, London, written by Mrs.
John Stuart Mill, marked for begin
ning of the movement for woman suf
frage in Great Britain.
In June, 1852, the first womanV
rights convention of Pennsylvania wns
held In Westchester and was largely
under the auspices of tho Friends, or
Quakers, among them James and Lu
cretla Mott. There have been annual
meetings lu or near Philadelphia since
18G0, when Miss Mary Grew was elect
ed president of the state society. She
hold the office until 1S92, when, nt the
age of eighty, she resigned and was
succeeded by Mrs. Blankenburg, a
namesake of Lucretla Mott's and wife
of the present mayor of Philadelphia.
Mrs. Blankenburg served as president
sixteen years, when she decided to re
tiro, and Mrs. Rachel Foster Avery
was elected to succeed her. Mrs. Av
ery held the office only two years, on
account of her plans to leave the state.
Mrs. Ellen II. E. Price, who Is super
intendent of educational Interests of
the Philadelphia yearly" meeting, wns
elected at the convention at Harris
burg in 1010 to succeed Mrs. Avery
and Is now president of the associa
tion. The National Woman Suffrago as
sociation Is a federation of Btate suf
frage associations covering nearly
every state In the Union, the latter be
ing composed of county societies,
which in turn arc made up of local
suffrage clubs, all members paying
Gain For Woman Suffrage.
When tho first woman's ricrlits mn.
ventlon was held in 1848 a womtm
had no franchise privileges in this 1
country except a very slight school I
suffrage in Kentucky. At tho present
time they have complete voting rights
in six states of tho Union, municipal
suffrage in Kansas, school suffrage in
twenty-six states and territories, tux-
paying suffrago In five states. i
in New Zealand, Australia, Norway
and Finland all women vote on exactly
tho same terms as men and In the last
three countries mny sit in parliament.
Finland has nineteen women lu its
parliament and Norway ono. In Orcnt:
Britain, Sweden and Iceland they vote
for all officials except members of
parliament In Cannda they have
school and municipal suffrage. In
Scotland single women and widows ,
have municipal and county suffrage.
In the Isle of Man women nnsKnsu
full parliamentary suffrage. In Franco
tney may voto for Judges of tho tribu
nal of commerce. Denmark women
can voto for all officers except mem
bers of parliament. In Belgium they
voto for members of city councils. In
Bosnia women taxpayers have thu
parliamentary vote. In Lalbach, Aus
tria, they have municipal suffrage. In
Baroda, India, women havo municipal
juffrnge. In Burma they have munic
ipal suffrage. In the kingdom of Wurt
temberg they havo a slight form of suf
frage. The new republic of Chlua has
granted tho suffrago to women on tho
same terms ns men, nnd it Is said that
the Chinese parliament will hare at
Inast ono woman member.
