Speech of Hon. Joseph L. Bristow of Kansas in the Senate of the United States. In this speech, Senator Bristow criticizes President Wilson for not supporting suffrage for women. He outlined the history of his home state (Kansas) in regards to voting rights for women, who, by the time of this speech, had full voting rights. He refers to a visit to President Wilson by a delegation of women headed by Dr. Anna Shaw. He then quotes Wilson's remarks that indicate he is bound by the Democratic party platform which opposed votes for women. Bristow quotes several other instances where President Wilson appears not to be bound by his party's platform.

Creator: Bristow, Joseph L. (Joseph Little), 1861-1944
