Title

Constitution for the Mount Holyoke Chapter of the National College Equal Suffrage League, 1911

Description

During the spring of 1911, Mount Holyoke students established a chapter of the National College Equal Suffrage League on campus. Slava Balanbanoff x’13, the first secretary-treasurer, hand-copied and signed the group’s constitution, which set up procedures for election of officers and delegates to the national council, specified eligibility requirements for membership to the chapter, and outlined a mission statement. Faculty and students were eligible for membership, provided that they paid a fee of 25¢ (equivalent to about $6 in 2019). The purpose of the club was “to promote equal suffrage sentiment among college women and men.”
