Maud Nathan

(1862–1946) Maud was a social worker, labor activist, and suffragist for women's right to vote. Lobbying Albany on consumer issues made Maud realize how little legislators cared about the opinions of vote-less women and so she became more involved in suffrage activities. In 1908, Maud published a pamphlet entitled The Wage Earner and the Ballot which pointed out that in suffrage states the age of consent was higher, the illiteracy rate was lower, women were paid more for civil service jobs, and there were stronger child labor laws.
