    Some very active work has been carried on this summer in the Third Assembly District of the Borough of Manhattan by the Woman Suffrage Party . . . Beginning at St. Mark’s Place we have moved south through the district until last Tuesday we held a stirring meeting near the southern boundary of the district, which is at the corner of Mott and Pell streets. This includes rough sections of the city, and Chinatown is one of the roughest. Many good friends warned us against going there, but our party, which aims to reach every section, sternly disallowed that any street, by- way, court or alley shall be closed to us. We suffragists are implacably against restricted districts of any kind . . . We expected a polyglot and varied crowd at the meeting at Mott and Pell streets. We took with us literature in Yiddish, Italian, and notices were written in Chinese. We were sure the politicians from the surrounding district political clubs would come out. We knew that many voters would be there whom we could reach, . . . that many a white-faced despairing woman could hear our message, that many struggling mothers and children would listen to us, that many of the respectable merchants and business men, both American and Chinese, who want better conditions, would welcome us, and that some of the social workers of the district would co-operate—to make our meeting successful. But we were not prepared to see the great orderly throng that greeted us. Many efficient police officers were stationed about, and any slight disturbances were immediately quelled. —Harriet Burton Laidlaw, suffragist The Woman’s Journal, July 13, 1912 Question: Why were the protestors warned not to go to Chinatown?
