"Feminists, who for decades had been working to further women's rights, now saw the ballot as the key to the struggle for equality. In 1890 they had formed the National American Woman Suffrage Association, headed at first by such veteran leaders as Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanto. Only four lightly populated western states had given women full suffrage by 1900. The strongers opponents of the movement were women themselves, fearful that sex roles might be altered and that the family might in some way be damaged. When Massachusetts voted on he suffrage issue in 1895, four times as many men were in favor of it as women. "
