Alice Duer Miller was an American suffragist whose poetry influenced political opinion. In many of her poems, including this one, Duer Miller responds directly to a popular quote from people who expressed anti-feminist and anti-suffragist ideals. In this poem, she responds directly to the Vice President at the time, Thomas Marshall.
