McBride, Genevieve G. "Theodora Winton Youmans and the Wisconsin woman movement"


Theodora Winton Youmans and the Wisconsin Woman Movement: Genevieve McBride tells the story of Theodora Winton Youmans' dual roles as president of the Wisconsin Woman Suffrage Association and as assistant editor and suffrage writer for the Waukesha Freeman. The author notes that the best sources for the history of the second-generation suffrage movement come from Youmans' own history of the movement and the more than 400 columns she wrote for the Freeman. Rejecting the militancy of other members of the suffrage movement, Youmans was a first-rate organizer whose inability to tolerate conflicting allegiances caused leadership crises within the WWSA.
