Clipping : Cartoons magazine. Votes for Women. [1912]

Description

Reproductions of drawings by Paul Plaschke, James North, and Arthur Racey originally published in the Louisville Post, Tacoma Daily Ledger, and Montreal Star.

"When The Women Vote" by Paul Plaschke shows a woman approaching a small house on wheels, decorated with bows and signs that say: "Ladies-Register here for School Trustee Election" and "A Pink Certificate with Each Registration" used as a way to attract women voters.

"The Political Pannier" by James North depicts Theodore Roosevelt during his bid for president during the 1912 election. The illustration features a crudly drawn Roosevelt, wearing a long dress, gloves, and an apron with the slogan "Votes for Women Vote for Me."

"Wisdom" by Arthur George Racey shows a woman standing at the entrance to Canada, wearing a hat labeled "Militant Suffragette" and carrying supplies, including "assorted bricks, hatchets, and other missils" and "kerosene for incendiary purposes." The guard prevents her from entering. The cartoon is a reference to Barbara Wylie, member of the Women's Social and Political Union in England who went to Canada for a suffrage speaking tour in 1912.
