The Awakening

The Awakening, illustration by Henry Mayer, 1915. Image links to item on the Library of Congress website.
Illustration [1915] shows a torch-bearing female labeled "Votes for Women", symbolizing the awakening of the nation's women to the desire for suffrage, striding across the western states, where women already had the right to vote, toward the east where women are reaching out to her. Printed below the cartoon is a poem by Alice Duer Miller (view large version).
