Balloting for president, 1844. Creator: Smyth Featured Print

Balloting for president, 1844. Creator: Smyth

Balloting for president, 1844. Presidential elections in the USA. "The ballot-boxes were placed on a long table, at which half a dozen of the inspectors or canvassers of voters were seated. The voters approached the table by single files. Not a word was spoken. Each voter delivered his list when he got next to the tables to the officers, who called out his name. Any person might object, but the objection was instantly decided on, the officers having no difficulty, from their knowledge of the township, of the persons residing in it, and to whose testimony reference was instantly made, in determining on the spot, whether the qualification of the voter was or was not sufficient"...The mode in which this election has been carried on is beyond all praise. The quiet, order, decency, and forbearance observed at all the polling-places in this city [New York] were admirable'. From "Illustrated London News", 1844, Vol V

Emmeline and Christabel Pankhurst, English suffragettes, in prison dress, 1908

Emmeline and Christabel Pankhurst, English suffragettes, in prison dress, 1908. Emmeline Pankhurst (1857-1918) and her daughter Christabel (1880-1958), were among the leaders of the campaign to secure the vote for women. Their militant tactics resulted in their being arrested on numerous occasions (12 times in one year in Emmeline's case). In 1908, the women served 2 months apiece in Holloway Prison after leading a deputation to Parliament and inciting the crowd to rush the House of Commons. (Colorised black and white print)

An Ugly Rush!, 1870. Artist: Joseph Swain Featured Print

An Ugly Rush!, 1870. Artist: Joseph Swain

An Ugly Rush!, 1870. Woman's Vote Bill. A stout John Bull, the representative of the British people or, in this case, British men, puts his back to the door upon which a number of women pound with their various demands. The previous year, women ratepayers had been given the right to vote in local elections. However, a Bill had recently been introduced proposing that women should be granted a parliamentary franchise. The proposal had been rejected, much to Mr Punch's relief. It is always worth noting how the women activists are presented. With their skirts slightly too short for modesty, they are decorated with rosettes. They are usually depicted as acidic spinsters, embittered, bespectacled, and the complete antithesis of the young woman walking behind this group in the street. She is the epitome of the modest wife, and good mother. From Punch, or the London Charivari, May 28, 1870
