Southern States Woman Suffrage Conference: Second Annual Convention



Southern States Woman Suffrage Conference: Second Annual Convention


This program is for the Southern States Woman Suffrage Conference Second Annual Convention, held at the Jefferson Hotel in Richmond, VA from December 11, 1915 to December 13, 1915.

The back cover displays a poem entitled "The Suffragists' 'America,'" by Mary L. Daly of Yonkers, N.Y. 

"My country 'tis for thee,
To make your women free,
      This is our plea.
High have our hopes been raised
In these enlightened days
That for her justice, praised
       Our land might be.

My native country, thee; 
Grant us equality! 
       Then shall we see
In this fair land of light, 
Justice and truth and right
Ruling, instead of might - 
       True liberty. 

'Our fathers' God to Thee,
Author of liberty,
        To Thee we sing;
Long may our land be bright
With freedom's holy light; 
Protect us by Thy might,
       Great God, our King.'"
