Title

Pennant with slogan "Suffragette Coppette / Who would resist arrest?" [Circa 1909-1915]

Description

White on orange felt pennant with illustration of a young woman dressed as a police officer, holding a rolling pin, with a small dog at her side.

The woman has her hands on her hips. She is wearing gloves and her belt is cinched around her waist to make the uniform more form-fitting; she is also wearing high heels. The number on her hat and on the rose on her chest, is 138.

A similar image appeared in a 1909 anti-suffrage postcard series produced by Dunston-Weiler Lithograph Company of New York. The Lewis collection includes the postcard.

There are no manufacturer marks on this pennant.
