TICKET

A woman is wearing white tights and a white short dress with red crosses stitched on them. She has a green cape hanging from her shoulders. She has on a large pirate-like green and white hat with a white cross on her head. She is holding a glass cup and a long walking stick on her opposite and. A man that is no taller than the woman's knees looks up to her frightened. Beside the woman's head is, "NO ONE CAN LOOK AFTER A MAN SO WELL AS A WOMAN AND I GUARANTEE TO TAKE CARE OF YOU." The man says, "Help! I'm sick! I need a doctor like you." At the bottom is a poster that says, "THE HAND THAT ROCKS THE CRADLE FOOLS THE WORLD" and "SUFFRAGETTE TICKET." With an illustration of the quote.

[Image: Part of a series of postcards, this card is labeled Suffragette Series No. 94.

The main illustration is a woman scantily dressed in a Red Cross nurse's uniform, holding up a wine glass, next to a very small childish looking man, who is saying "Help! I'm sick! I need a doctor like you. The woman says: "No one can look after a man so well as a woman and I guarantee to take care of you." In the corner is an illustration of a large baby crying in a cradle, and is labeled the "Suffragette Ticket" with the inscription, "The hand that rocks the cradle fools the world."]
