Why We Oppose Votes for Men – a Poem from 1915

Flowers For Socrates

Alice Duer Miller (1874-1942) was born on July 28, 1874, in Staten Island, New York. She was an American poet, novelist, screenwriter, satirist, and feminist. The New York Tribune published a series of her wonderful satirical poems lambasting the objections to women voting, which were then published in 1915 as a book called Are Women People?, which became a catchphrase of the women’s suffrage movement.
