Woman’s Suffrage: Emeline Pankhurst’s Visit to the U.S., Oct-Nov 1913

The methods used by women suffragettes, working to gain their right to vote, varied amongst the different movements. In the U.S., the women’s movement used mostly peaceful protest, while in Britain, part of their movement was becoming increasingly militant. They threw bricks, smashed windows, engaged in arson, and even bombed public buildings. Emeline Pankhurst was a leader of this militant approach.

In October & November 1913, just recently released from prison, Pankhurst visited the U.S. for a speaking tour. While British authorities were more than happy to see her going, there was a debate in the U.S. prior to her arrival, on whether she should even be allowed entrance. Their fear was that Pankhurst would persuade U.S. suffragettes to take up the more violent approach of their British counterparts.

Today’s post presents Cartoons Magazine‘s coverage of what was labeled as “Pankhursteria”, surrounding her U.S. tour. First, we have the five pages on Pankhurst, from Cartoons Magazine‘s November 1913 issue. Cartoons accompanying this issue’s article, were taken from Jay Norwood “Ding” Darling (above), W.A. Ireland (below left), and Nelson Harding (below right).

Click on the above & below pages, to see the cartoons in fuller detail, and be able to read the text.

Above, the last two pages from the November 1913 issue, including art by Guy Spencer and E.A. Bushnell.

Beneath, the opening pair of pages of December 1913‘s Cartoons Magazine article, with a full page cartoon by Daniel Fitzpatrick, at right.

Additional cartoons: above, by Robert Satterfield and Winner; below, by Billy Ireland and Ole May.
