Title

Woman's Journal and Suffrage News, May 29, 1915.

Description

Political cartoon by Charles H. "Bill" Sykes published by Woman's Journal and Suffrage News, Vol . 46, No.22, May 29, 1915.

A dour woman named "Anti-Suffrage" sits on the steps to block several young girls from leaving a house. Outside, girls from states where women have the vote (California, Illinois, Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, etc.) are holding hands and playing a circle game. A young girl in pilgrim costume (Massachusetts) is peering outside.

Caption reads: 

Chorus from within (Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania): "Why can't we play, too?"

Publication note: Adapted from the Springfield Republican
