Woman Citizen, January 5, 1918


[Image Description: The cover of Woman Citizen shows a drawing of a woman wearing a white neoclassical dress with the word "suffrage" written across her chest. On either side of here are men dressed in coattails stand on either side of her. The man to the left is pulling on her left arm and has "Dem" written on his chest. The man to her right is pulling on her right arm and has "Rep" written on his chest. At the bottom of the image is text that reads: "In the Hands of Her Friends"]

The cover illustration is by C. D. Batchelor

[Image Description: The second image is of a woman in a neoclassical white dress with her arms stretched out above her head and her fingers spread. Branches grow from her fingertips into a fruit bearing tree above her head. Behind her is a neoclassical building. On either side of her are the words "Woman Suffrage".]

This image is from an original painting by Evelyn Rumsey Cary. The text at the bottom of the image, which was well known to suffragists, was taken from Proverbs 31:31.

“Give her of the fruit of her hands, and let her own works praise her in the gates.”
