This cartoon, printed in the Anti-Suffrage Review in 1912, features a young girl and her father who are shocked at the sight of the girl’s mother rushing off to a suffrage protest. The mother runs wildly past the window wielding a hatchet and a "Votes for Women" pennant. A band around her head holds a feather, associating her behavior with racist stereotypes of "Indian savagery" and suggesting that suffragists were "uncivilized" threats to the established order.
