Description

Full color cartoon published on the cover of Puck Magazine, a weekly humor magazine first published in 1871 until 1918. This page has been removed from the original issue.

Caption: How can she vote, when the fashions are so wide, and the voting booths are so narrow?

Illustration shows a tall woman wearing a very wide dress and hat, who is denied the opportunity to vote because she cannot fit in the narrow booths. On the doors to the voting booths are signs: "Ballots Must Be Prepared In These Booths." A policeman is standing on the left, and, in the background, election officials are standing over the ballot box for "Election District No. 13".

On the reverse, is an article about the women's suffrage movement entitled "Concerning an unmanly fad."
