Author: Henry, Josephine K.
Title: "The New Woman of the New South"
Publisher: The Arena 11 (1895): 353-363. (transcribed for WikiSource)
This article by Josephine Kirby Williamson Henry (1846-1928) of the Kentucky Equl Rights Association - with its attending quotations and signatures from 535 suffragists across the South - was commissioned by the editor of The Arena who had received an anti-suffrage article from a "prominent Memphis woman" (History of Woman Suffrage 1883-1900, 927). In her essay, Henry characterized two types of Southern women: those more interested in "retaining their social prestige" and those "of he highest intelligence and social standing" who had "courage" to address social issues of the day and demand action for change.
