The Woman Voter and the Newsletter was the organ of the Woman Suffrage Party and the New York State Woman Suffrage Association. It was edited by Florence Woolston, later Florence Guy Woolston Seabury. She worked as a teacher in the Settlement movement in New York City during the 1910s and later became a successful journalist, contributing to Harper's, The New Republic, The Nation and Redbook. She also wrote The Delicatessen Husband (1926), Love is a Challenge, (1936), and We the Women (1938), all of which are very scarce.

Some of the articles include: "Are Women People?" by Caroline Clifton Knapp, "The Hike to Albany," by Sibyl Wilbur, "Wilhelm Wundt and Woman Suffrage" by Katharine Anthony, and "The Morality of Women" by Marie Jenney Howe. The ads, which are primarily for women's products like hosiery, beauty products, clothing, and suffrage literature, are also interesting
