Catalogue Note

Established by Clara Bewick Colby in 1883, The Woman's Tribune ran until 1909 and grew to later include Washington D.C., and Portland, Oregon as places of publication (Lomicky, 'Frontier Feminism and the Woman's Tribune). 

Unlike other suffrage papers, which focused on urban culture, Colby focused on the female culture of the Midwestern frontier. "The Woman’s Tribune, then, reflected late-nineteenth century radical feminist culture in the sense that Clara Bewick Colby created a periodical that celebrated all the achievements of women—
both mundane and extraordinary." (Henry 30) This broad appeal made it one of the most powerful voices of feminist ideology during its day. 

This issue contains a letter from Susan Anthony, recounting her efforts to persuade Benjamin Harrison, the Republicans’ presidential candidate, to support “woman’s enfranchisement," as well as another column by Anthony as a representative of the National Woman Suffrage Association.
