Woman and the Republic by Helen Johnson (1844 - 1917).

First published in 1897, the book is considered to be the best summary of the arguments against woman suffrage. It allows readers to understand better why opposing views towards women's suffrage were prevalent even among women themselves then.
  1. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
  2. New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
  3. Is there a deadline? We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen.Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.
  4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/7300
  5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)! If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.

Sounds like an interesting project! And it's always good to hear the other side.

I'll MC this for you - back in a moment with the MW.

Edit: and here we are! Let's wait here for a bit and see if we can attract a DPL together with the readers. Have fun! :D
Cheers,
Ava.

I would like to contribute to this project. Since I'm the first to throw in my hat, perhaps I could read the Introductory chapter? I'm guessing this would be considered section 1. I would also be willing to read the following Chapter, presumably section 2.

Thanks for getting back to me about this. :)

Thank you, Availle! It's just so nice to have you as the MC here :D
At the moment, I don't have access to the section compiler to edit the magic window yet. This is supposed to be the case for the time being, right?

You don't need to post the word counts here, you can just add everything straight into the MW. :wink:

As far as I'm concerned, you're in the database as the BC for this project. :?: Just click the "BC Admin" link underneath the MW, enter your username "YuqingJune" and password for the workflow and off you go.
Cheers,
Ava.

Thank you for the suggestion! This is exactly what I've been doing, but apparently I "don't have permissions for this area"...
The status stated there is "--select status--", and I'm afraid I cannot edit that either.
Thanks in advance for your assistance! :)
Cheers,
Yuqing
