Title

Puck magazine, centerfold : "Why the first meeting of the 'Advanced Women's Club' was a failure." Frederick Opper. [January 8, 1896]

Description

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

Illustration shows six scenes. A group of women are seated next to one another, addressed by "Prof. Brayneford" who has written a paper on "Burning Questions of Reform for Women." In each scene, one woman leaves the meeting after being insulted by the speaker's assertions that they are each unattractive or objectionable in some way due to their physical appearance. The president of the organization, crying, is the only one left in the room with the speaker by the end.

Each scene contains an individual caption.
