Abstract

This Part of AMERICAN VOICES IN A CHANGING DEMOCRACY: WOMEN, LOBBYING, AND TAX 1924-1936 examines the tax activities of several conservative women groups in the mid-1930s, specifically attempts to defeat Roosevelt in the 1936 election. It focuses on one significant tax aspect of the anti-Roosevelt campaign—the emphasis on the heavy burden his administration was placing on the average person (the forgotten “man”) through reliance on “hidden taxes”. It concentrates on women’s efforts in the Republican campaign but also discusses other women’s activities including the Minute Women of 1936.

Keywords: history, lobbying, mass communications, media, politics, taxation, women
