Rights of suffrage for women.
--Mesdames E. Cady Stanton
, Lucy Stone
, and Susan B. Anthony
, all of them ardent advocates of women's rights, have addressed a petition to Congress, asking an amendment of the Constitution of the United States
that shall prohibit hereafter the States respectively from disfranchising any of their citizens on the ground of sex. They claim that fifteen millions of white women have quite as much right to be invested with the suffrage as four millions of blacks.
