The caption on the print's verso reads: "EDITOR OF WASHINGTON'S NEW SUFFRAGIST WEEKLY NEWSPAPER. Mrs. Rheta Childe Dorr, editor of the new suffrage newspaper which is to be published in Washington, is a well known writer of sociology. She is the author of several books and numerous magazine articles on sociology and has traveled extensively on both sides of the Atlantic in the study of the industrial condition of women. The newspaper, which is called the "Suffragist" is to be published weekly and is the official organ of the branch of the suffrage workers which is endeavoring to influence national legislation for the cause. The idea of the publication as Mrs. Dorr explains it is to bring to the attention of women all over the country that they may have a voice in government by making it a political issue and electing men to the high public offices who are favorable to equal suffrage. Through the magazine the women are to wage their fight for an amendment to the constitution providing for equal suffrage."
