The Last Blast of the Trumpet Against the Monstrous Regiment of Women

Gordon, Robert (Reverend)

Rev. Robert Gordon apparently was the pastor at the First Baptist Church of Topeka, Kansas. This leaflet was written in response to efforts to defeat the constitutional amendment that would give Kansas women full suffrage in 1912. Gordon is a supporter of woman's suffrage and attempts to respond to arguments of those opposed to the amendment. Gordon states that "this organized, highly-financed, eleventh-hour assault is not inspired by honest conviction. It is a desperate effort born of a craven fear of good women on the part of men who know what women will do . . . ."
