Title

Where are you going, my Suffragette?

Description

Where are you going, my Suffragette?
I'm going to Washington, sir; she said.
What will you do there, my Suffragette?
Ask for the Ballot, sir; she said.
What will you do next, my Suffragette?
See to our country, sir; she said.
What will the men do, my suffragette?
Stand 'round--tell us how, sir; she said.
But, for the poor men, what will you do?
Oh, marry them still, and love them too.
Just as our mothers used to do?
If like our fathers, you're good and true.
Then we'll give three cheers, my Suffragette.
Also the ballot? sir; she said.

[Image: Poem by Emma J. Hughes on the front of the card. On the verso, there is an illustration of a suffragist holding a "Votes for Women" flag looking at a man with his hands on his hips. The inscription reads: "Where are you going my Suffragette?" The card is marked No. 27.]
