Stimulating use of a William Mckinley political campaign button circa 1896.
McKinley and his wife Ida became well known supporters of many women's rights issues. "
He and women auxiliaries were especially visible in presidential campaigns, and marched in parades, hosted events, spoke their minds, and got out the vote. Women were involved in a broad national effort to attain equal treatment in the marketplace, to vote, and to affect national life on an equal basis with men.
McKinley agreed with the direction of this drive for equality and influence, which was spelled out in the party's national platform: "The Republican party is mindful of the rights and interests of women. Protection of American industries includes equal opportunities, equal pay for equal work, and protection to the home. We favor the admission of women to wider spheres of usefulness, and we welcome their cooperation in rescuing the country from Democratic and Populist mismanagement and misrule."
Their bond is a wonderfully progressive statement, a sparkling expressive example of fashioned enlightenment, a politically poetic unified relationship, and an unabashed beautiful American collaboration. A truly quintessential masterpiece of expressive freedom !
