Catholic Citizen 6.5 (15 May 1920)
The second major article of the issue features a history of the Society by Isabel Willis, the Society's honorary press secretary. Willis traces this history from the Society's inception in 1911 during a series of "provisional and informal" meetings, through the War to its current efforts "to establish political, social, and economic equality between men and women, and to further the work and usefulness of Catholic women as citizens."
This issue also includes notes on the Society's ongoing initiatives and information regarding current bills in Parliabment, as well as news from the Continent regarding the Paris Congress of Women Workers and the Geneva Congress. The seamless integration of political discussions with Society news reveals both the political leanings of the Society and their their significant interest in international suffrage movements.
Finally, take note of the advertisements on the final page for the meetings and periodicals of other suffrage groups, including the International Woman Suffrage Alliance and the Women's Freedom League. This page offers a glimpse of the close relationships between these associations, which may have shared many members just as they indeed shared the goal of full suffrage.
