WOMEN ARE BETTER: Senator votes for women’s suffrage on view wise women will more often than not reach a better conclusion

Reports the New-York Tribune on the reasons Senator Palmer expressed during debate in the New York Senate for favoring women’s suffrage:

I favor this resolution, and I favor woman suffrage, because I believe women’s voting will help in general to improve morals and politics. When a woman is good, she is better than a good man just as when she is bad she is worse than a bad man. But the proportion of good women to good men is greater than the proportion of bad women to bad men. So I am willing the women should have a chance to vote and help the men improve conditions.

One wonders whether anyone else will deliver a speech opining that a wise women with the richness of her experiences would, more often than not, reach a better conclusion than a man. Time will tell.
