Women, your freedom is in question. Strike.” To her right is a man in a chicken costume who is shouting at her. Text below reads, “Ah’ go lay an Egg.”]

[Image: Part of a series of postcards, this card is labeled Serie No. 67. The illustration shows a family dressed as hens and roosters. The mom is wearing a "Suffragette Votes for Women" sash and a large hat. She is staring at her husband as he yells at her, while her three children are crying at her feet. On the wall is a sign that reads: "Wives meet tonight Votes for women. Women your freedom is in question. Strike mere men. Signing up is commitment."

On the verso, the card is addressed to Miss Ruth Gould 40 Sixth Ave. Haverhill Massachusetts U.S.A. There is no postmark, but the message is dated July, 1914. The message reads:
"Winnipeg Canada Dear Ruth-- Have been in Canada since last May from Sydney U.S. here. Am glad to leave for home U.S.A. Lovingly Jim]
