Title

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

Description

Reproductions of drawings by Billy DeBeck and William Kemp Starrett, originally published in the Pittsburgh Gazette Times and the Knickerbocker Press.

The cartoons depict Rosalie Jones' suffrage hike from Manhattan to Albany, New York to bring attention to women's suffrage.

"Disillusionment" by DeBeck, shows a woman dreaming of charging forward with an army of suffragists to demand "Votes for Women" and the bottom shows the "reality" of a few women making little progress, one using a cane for support and another rubbing blistered feet.

"The Spirit of 1912" by Starrett shows three women playing the drums and flute, leading a parade with the slogan "Votes for Women" after Archibald Willard's "Spirit of '76."
