Men's League for Women's Suffrage
Although the cause of Women's Suffrage has made rapid advance,
yet it has been felt that the work of promoting this cause should
not be left to women alone, but that men should show their sympathy
with the movement by supplementing the efforts of women to obtain
their undoubted rights.
A League under the above title has, therefore, been formed,
irrespective of the interests of any party, with the subject of
promoting the political enfranchisement of women by the use of the
vote and by active propaganda.
The special means which the League will adopt for promoting the
Enfranchisement of Women are:-
(i) Meetings both for men only and for the general public, for
the discussion of the various social bearings of the Political
Enfranchisement of Women
(2) Delegations of the League to wait upon persons of
(3) The publication and dissemination of suitable literature
