(“The Latin man believes that giving woman the vote will make her less attractive.”—Anna H. Shaw.)

They must sacrifice their beauty
Who would do their civic duty,
            Who the polling booth would enter,
            Who the ballot box would use;
As the drop their ballots in it 
Men and women in a minute,
            Lose their charm, the antis tell us,
            But—the men have less to lose.
