An Anti-Suffrage Viewpoint

This satirical drawing published in the January 23, 1915, edition of the humor magazine Puck pokes fun at the double standard of some who oppose woman suffrage. The illustration depicts a New Year's Eve party at a nightclub, during which a tuxedoed man accompanied by a woman unexpectedly spies his wife across the room. "I'll bet she's looking for me!", he tells his "fair companion," who replies, "Oh, dear! Why can't some people understand that woman's place is in the home?"
