Jessie Jack Hooper runs for the Senate in 1922

Platform of Mrs. Jess[i]e Jack Hooper : Independent Democratic candidate for United States Senate in Wisconsin.


A clubwoman and local leader in school reform and public health campaigns, Jessie Jack Hooper joined the women's suffrage campaign in the 1910s. After women won the vote in 1920, Hooper became president of the Wisconsin League of Women Voters, leading the organization's lobbying efforts. In the 1920s, many women entered politics, including Hooper. In 1922, she ran for the U.S. Senate as a Democrat against Robert M La Follette, whose isolationist views she refutes in this campaign flyer.
