By The Reviewer Formerly Known as Kurt Johnson TOP 1000 REVIEWER on January 10, 2016
Format: Paperback
I am something of a fan of Victorian and Edwardian literature, and was rather intrigued when this book fell into my hands. Dr. Almroth Edward Wright (1861-1947) was a respected and leading bacteriologist, and was a tireless advocate of immunization to prevent diseases. He was also a tireless opponent of woman suffrage. I picked up this, his 1913 polemic against votes for women, hoping to read a well-reasoned book, showing the underlying structure of the anti-Suffragettes. Well, it may well represent the anti-Suffragette feelings, but it was far from well-reasoned!

The author starts with an attack on male supporters of woman suffrage, arguing that, since any reasonable man knows that women should not have the vote, any man who thinks women should have the vote is by definition acting unreasonably. After that, he launches into an attack on arguments put forward in support of woman suffrage, using arguments often so twisted in their logic that they quite left me behind; for example, arguing that since women could not (at that time) earn as much as men, and pay as much as men, then women had no right to the vote and should instead be grateful to men for giving them monetary support, and not seek to improve their position vis-à-vis men.

After this, the author argues that women should not be given the vote because they are not as physically strong as men (I really had trouble with the logic of this), they are not intelligent as men (evinced by the fact that they consider themselves equal to men!), and that they are not as moral as men (evinced by the fact that they will break the law to get the vote). And what is Dr. Wright’s solution to the Suffragette movement?
