Title

Girls are doing all the fellows jobs now

Description

World War I era anti-suffrage cartoon showing two women kissing

This cartoon uses its iconography to present a dangerous “slippery slope,” using thinly veiled references to lesbianism to stoke fears of male emasculation, playing on the social tensions from American women having entered traditionally male trades during World War I.
