The Electoral Bill is not yet on the statute book, but barring unforeseen accidents we may presume that at the next Parliamentary election, the farmer’s wife will have the same right to the vote as her husband has. Probably, there are very few who have had any personal desire for the privilege, but that does not matter now….
Now we hope that farmers — when they have wearied themselves and everybody else with their jokes on the subject — will awake to the reality that their wives have definite ideas about what help they expect from our legislators and how to set about getting it….
We are expecting more from women — that they will think things out for themselves and have a special women’s programme to stir up a sluggish government. As we have not yet actually got the vote, I may say no more at present.
