2-paneled political cartoon entitled Here and in London. Top panel: a gentile man bows, handing a document that says suffrage on it to a woman representing Alaska who is taking down laundry from a clothesline. Bottom panel: men jeering and throwing things at a woman who is campaigning for suffrage in England.

This political cartoon from the Tacoma Ledger depicts an Alaska legislator granting women’s suffrage in a civil manner, as compared to the violence experienced by British suffragettes at the same time.
