May 27, 1911

THE WOMAN'S JOURNAL, Boston, Massachusetts, May 27, 1911  As stated under the masthead, this publication was the "Official Organ of the National American Woman Suffrage Association", being founded by Lucy Stone and Henry B. Blackwell and was "a weekly newspaper devoted to winning equal rights and especially to winning equal suffrage for women". The front page features a large emblem announcing the upcoming National Suffrage Convention which would be held at Louisville, Kentucky in October. This also includes the Constitution for the convention as well.

"Two Supreme Court Decisions" contains the comments pertaining to the recent rendering in the Standard Oil trust case. "...It held that the Standard Oil trust unduly restricted competition in trade, and therefore should be dissolved... The Standard Oil trust, nominally dissolved, will no doubt recombine in a slightly different form and continue to do business at the old stand, and will raise the price of the oil enough to cover its law expenses. Meanwhile all the other trusts are happy."

Other stories pertaining to the suffrage movement and advertisements are within.

This is complete 8 pages with a slight irregular left spine, even browning of the margins, some chipping at the edges, very lite discoloration at the centerfold, otherwise in good condition.
