Description

Introduced by Helen Knowles. J.J. Gallagher and B.A. Koellhoffer portray women in marches and throwing bricks on its cover. The story is told from an English immigrant viewpoint, where he was attacked in Hyde Park by suffragists who thought he was a member of Parliament. He describes them as wearing “Men’s collars and shirt fronts,” looking to obtain men’s votes, notes, and trousers, painting the stereotype that suffragettes really want to be men.
