- Who does Anna Lawther say is to blame for the defeat of Iowa women's suffrage in 1916? She wrote that "This carelessness is inexcusable, but nevertheless must be endured ..." Why must this action endured by women rather than acted upon?
- What hope does Lawther offer that women's suffrage is still possible? Why would the federal amendment be the quickest path for women's voting rights in Iowa?
- Infer as to why a person might not have wanted to help Lawther.
