Real Opponents to the Suffrage Movement Says Mr. Bok are the Women Themselves Whose Peculiar Field of Work Lies Outside of Politics. (From The New York Times, Sunday, April 18, 1909.)

New York: The New York State Association Opposed to Woman Suffrage, 1909. First Edition. Apparently the only published version of this interview with Edward W. Bok, editor of the Ladies' Home Journal and author of the Pulitzer-winning autobiography The Americanization of Edward Bok (1920). With more than two million readers, Bok's Journal exercised considerable influence over public opinion; and while progressive in some areas, Bok remained an outspoken opponent of Woman Suffrage until after the passage of the 19th Amendment. Bok claimed his opposition to suffrage cost his magazine at least 100,000 subscribers, but defended his position, insisting that his research indicated that most women did not want the vote (see American National Biography Online).
