T. D. Peacock, author of this pamphlet, offers several reasons why women should not vote. He argues that men have greater reasoning powers while women have greater intuitive powers. He also argues that women cannot be impartial judges in "complicated affairs of the public" because their emotions may be swayed by unimportant facts. To support his conclusions, he quotes notable women who were opposed to women's suffrage. A cataloging note on the pamphlet indicates it was published in Topeka, Kansas, in 1887.
