The purpose of this booklet was to assist "the women of Kansas in discharging the duties of citizenship." The pamphlet describes who should vote, where to register, where to vote, how to vote and the general election process. The pamphlet also includes information about the federal, state, city, and county governments. In addition to the information in the 1913 manual, this one contains information on school government, taxes, and state institutions. Several chapters contain information of interest to women about laws that impact women and children, marriage, divorce, care of dependents, property rights for spouses and descendents, and social issues such as drinking and gambling. At the back of the booklet is a fold out chart diagraming the organization of the various levels of government. This version of the manual was endorsed by the Kansas Woman's Christian Temperance Union, the Kansas League of Woman Voters, and the Wichita Federation of Women's Clubs. Mary Dobbs was one of the leaders of the Kansas WCTU.
