GIRLS I DIDN'T MARRY: The Suffragette

Description

[Image: A man is being kicked out of a brick building by seven women who are portrayed as old or unattractive, or both. All are wearing boots and plain dresses. The main female character is wearing a "Votes for Woman" button and on the bottom of her boot the words, "Votes for Women." A secondary female character is wearing a "Votes for Women" button and holding a sign reading "Women's Rights." At a window overlooking the scene are three more women, portrayed in the same negative manner as the ones at the door. On the building are four posted signs:
1. MAN? THE MISSING LINK
2. DOWN WITH THE MEN
3. NO MEN ADMITTED
4. MAN DISGRACES THE ANIMAL WORLD The placard announcing the name of the building reads: HOME FOR LOST STOLEN OR STRAYED SUFFRAGETTES
THE SUFFRAGETTE
The man's face shows an expression of bewilderment and his top hat is flying in the air in front of him. Under his is the caption: "Girls I Didn't Marry."] Print. Color. Cardstock. Size 9x14 cm. Copyright
