Satan and the Suffragette

A personal favorite from my small collection of early suffrage items.   This is a full page illustration from Collier's The National Weekly and appears in the Easter Number, 1909.  Certainly it was a flair to the incredibly oversized hats of the day ... and mi' lady's frivolous nature.  Oh the thought that the gentlemen could easily win the arguments by mere flattery.  A tempestuous tale!
