Chapter 1: The Role of the Suffrage Press
1.
Jane Rendall, The Origins of Modern Feminism: Women in Britain, France, and the United States 1780-1860 ( London: Macmillan, 1985), 7-33.
2.
Two problems of usage confront those who write about the American suffrage movement. First, the temptation is to refer to the movement in modern terms as feminist. But, as Nancy Cott points out, this is a fairly recent term that was not used by the women themselves. Thus, the following chapters will avoid that usage and employ the terms woman's movement and woman suffrage, both because that is how the persons involved identified themselves and also because those terms suggest their feeling that "the singular woman symbolized, in a word, the unity of the female sex. It proposed that all women have one cause, one movement" ( Nancy Cott , The Grounding of Modern Feminism [ New Haven: Yale University Press, 1987], 3-4). We will also use the term suffragist, rather than suffragette, to refer to the American workers. Although some younger women embraced the term suffragette, with its associations with the more militant and confrontational British movement, most older women preferred the term suffragist, which they felt was a less inflammatory and more decorous designation.

Second, how to refer to the women themselves is somewhat problematic. We will follow the practice outlined by Karlyn Kohrs Campbell of referring to the women either by the names they used for themselves, e.g., Carrie Chapman Catt, or by a combination of their birth and married names, e.g., Cady Stanton [ Karlyn Kohrs Campbell, Man Cannot Speak for Her: A Critical Study of Early Feminist Rhetoric
