Campaigning at Case: Presidential Elections, 1892-2008
1920: Women Vote

College for Women students had been part of the effort to win full suffrage for women since at least 1916, when they formed their Equal Suffrage League. The student chapters of the YMCA and the YWCA assisted students unable to return home to vote, helping them register and request and cast their absentee ballots, “Thus every voter in the University has had a chance to vote without being put to any great inconvenience.”

The Suffrage Club at the College for Women sought the right to vote.
Below is the first page of the script of The Taming of the Anti, produced by The Equal Suffrage League. It features a dialogue between Herbert and Gertrude Jones about the perils of female suffrage.
