of producing clean clothing and food. Author supports this argument by saying thatnowadays home groceries and clothing were mainly made from factory and womenwere large part of factory’s labor so women had a better position and power tosupervise factory legislation and shop sanitation if they participate in voting. JaneAddams indicates that, with developing and changing society, women had to followthe trend to do their job better. Only staying at home is not enough to serve theirobligations. And women could’ve done a better job on promoting these aspects insociety than men because of their more participation in family and children’ life andfactory production.Jane Addams’s point of view was similar to some of other suffragettes as authorherself stated that “Public-spirited women who wish to use the ballot, as I know them,do not wish to do the work of men nor to take over men's affairs. They simply want anopportunity to do their own work and to take care of those affairs which naturally andhistorically belong to women, but which are constantly being overlooked and slightedin our political institutions.” It means that some other women who were actuallyalready a member of suffragettes wanted to participate in voting due to the reasonsthat Jane Addams argues in the previous part of this editorial, which is that womenshould vote in order to help themselves serve as a better “mother” for their family.
