Henry Ward Beecher was the brother of Harriet Beecher Stowe. He was an advocate of women's suffrage as well as an abolitionist He argued that women brought refinement to society and therefore should be allowed to vote, as their influence would have a positive effect on public affairs. Harriet Beecher Stowe felt that "the state can no more afford to dispense with the votes of women in its affairs than the family." Henry appears to feel that women would bring a moral influence to public affairs.
