Antisuffragist

Antisuffragist

[suhf-ruh-jist]
Antisuffragists are those opposed to suffrage for women. The first antisuffrage group in the United States was organized by women in Washington, D.C. in 1871. Other groups were formed in Eastern states from time to time but the movement made little progress in the West. In 1911 women organized the National Association Opposed to Woman Suffrage and in 1913 the Men's Antisuffrage Association was organized in New York City. The organizations disappeared with the ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment in 1920.
