Mr JR Clynes to Miss Vera Leslie

Scope and Content

Writes in answer to her question ' Why are there not more women in Parliament' Only nine out of sixty seven women candidates were elected at last election, although there are more women voters than men; clear that women do not vote for women, but according to party. Thinks it would be very valuable if women 'would express themselves in some united and organised manner' on important questions of world peace and domestic subjects which especially interested them.
