This letter draws a connection between the women's club movement and the suffrage movement, illustrating how club women were also leaders in the fight for universal suffrage. This document would consequently be useful in class discussions about what kinds of women supported suffrage, and it could be grouped with a variety of other sources relating to the Kansas Federation of Women's Clubs.
