A Leading Suffragist Says that the Women's Suffrage Movement and Feminists Movement Were Two Separate Movements 1914

It is virtually impossible to criticize the feminist movement today without being labeled a woman-hating misogynist because the movement has been allowed to get away with claiming the women's suffrage movement and feminist movement were one in the same. As a result, when you criticize the feminist movement that means you don't believe women should have the right to vote according to them. Well this article from 1914 by a leading women's suffrage activist illustrates the fact that the women's suffrage movement and the feminist movement were two separate movements with separate philosophies. The woman in the article named Mrs. Higgins disagreed with the feminist movement and felt it was incredibly dangerous to the nuclear family structure.

Quoting from the article:

"She sounds a rallying cry to women to fight this movement, which she believes is widely different from the suffrage campaign" 

Do not allow people to get away with claiming the feminist movement and the women's suffrage movement were the same thing. They weren't.
