Description "I did not raise my girl to be a voter". Parody from Puck of the anti-World War I protest song "I Did Not Raise My Boy To Be A Soldier" with the context altered to women's suffrage. A conductor labeled "political boss" leads a lone female soloist surrounded by a male chorus with various labels including "procurer", "child labor employer", and "sweat shop owner". Arguments in favor of granting women the right to vote included the contention that female voters would support laws that reduced prostitution, labor abuses, and other social evils.
Date 1915, published 9 October on page 6 of Puck
Source Library of Congress [1]
Author Merle De Vore Johnson (1874-1935). Author not named in bibliographic record.
