Excerpt from The History of Equal Suffrage in Colorado: 1868-1898Multiplying benefits and bleesings have followed the triumph of Equal Suffrage in Colorado. The campaign of 1893 was a most notable one in the universal contest for equal rights for women. The victory was complete, and in its brilliant train of happy results are the substantial trophies of conquest which stand as a pledge for the final redemption of society. Now, after the experience of five years in the use of the ballot, the women of Colorado have come to a realization that the exercise of suffrage is but the open way of opportunity to their noble aspirations and their wider sphere of usefulness as equal factors with men in all human affairs.This practical understanding of the privileges of citizenship has stimulated the women of Colorado to a wonderful activity along all lines of public and private improvement, an activity that gives the most hopeful promise of future good to the community and furnishes the most satisfactory refutation of the dark prophesies of unbelievers.What was first, by custom termed the "Woman's Rights" movement began in America in the middle of this century, in connection with the anti-slavery agitation, with which it at first identified itself. The first Woman's Rights Convention was held at Seneca Falls, N. Y., July 19-20, 1848. An event in connection with the anti-slavery movement, transpiring in the city of London, eight years previous, is stated by Mrs. Elizabeth Cady Stanton as the prime incentive to this first convention.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
