Sometimes, history is funny

While I was looking for images of the Virginia Declaration of Rights (prompted by its 237th anniversary, today), I found this instead.

Notable parts of it include the claim that "the political woman will be a menace to society, to the home and to the state" and the offer of additional free literature on this subject (suggesting that author may have expected that readers would find these arguments so compelling that they would think, "Somehow, I need to find a way to get more literature of this kind").
