What would be the state of the masculine mind if the voting women should present to them only the following half dozen objections which are unhappily so familiar to so many of us?
First—Men would find politics corrupting.
Second—They would vote as their wives and mothers did.
Third—Men's suffrage would only double the vote without changing results.
Fourth—Men's suffrage would diminish the respect for men.
Fifth—Most men do not want to vote.
Sixth—The best men would not vote.
as recorded by Belle Case La Follette, April 6, 1912
