Anti-suffragette cartoon featuring woman and phrenologist
A fearsome-looking woman, with a scroll labelled Votes (for) Women, is having the bumps on her head examined by a man. He concludes that if she lives for a thousand years, her perseverance might lead her to become Prime Minister(ess). The two characters somewhat resemble a picture on the wall featuring the murderer Charlie Peace and the ex-PM Arthur Balfour.
