Both the pro and anti-suffrage movements used publications such as these above to try and further their views and influence public opinion.

The flyer listing "twelve reasons why women should vote" is the kind of literature that Mt. Holyoke students would have found distributed around campus by the college chapter of the National-American Woman Suffrage Association.

The cartoon illustrates the idea that traditional gender-roles shouldn't be tampered with. The cartoonist seems to say that "something is wrong with this picture", as the wife and mother heads out to the polls while the harried-looking husband stays home to tend the children.
