The Rise Of Women’s Influence In Politics

The Democratic Club of 1000 Women, based in Buffalo, held meetings to discuss ‘Political Education,’ as part of a correspondence school advocated by Mrs. Emily Newell Blair, the vice-chairman of the Democratic National Committee. These sessions were led by Mrs. James L. Sweeney who outlined the first principles of politics. Encouraging open dialogue, the club permitted members to engage in enriching discussions and answer questions. The organization led by Mrs. George W. Pfohl welcomed all individuals interested in the topic.

Parallelly, Mrs. F. Louis Slade, State Chairman of the League of Women Voters, put forth the notion that women voters could accomplish any political goal if they could harness unified, strong effort towards it.

Both the Republican and Democratic parties grappled with ensuring sufficient female representation on their state committees. The objective of equal representation was shared by both sides, further validating the changing trend. However, the balance between adequate representation and uncompromised efficiency of these committees became a point of debate for party leaders.
