When will the women of Hawaii gain suffrage? 1917.

WOMEN WILL BE ALLOWED TO VOTE

London, May 22—Before the onset of this frightening war in Europe, in England there was great opposition to the wish of women to have the right to vote; but today, there is consideration to give British women in England voting rights, and there is a bill before the British Parliament to give suffrage to women. From what is known, the number of women who will vote in England will reach 6,000,000, which is nearly a million more then the men; and perhaps the reason that there will be less men than women is because of the number of those who went to war in Europe. How long will it be before the women of Hawaii nei will be allowed to vote in the future.
