"Tee Hee" Boys: Born with a Vote and a Partial Sense of the Ridiculous

This ink and crayon drawing by John Sloan depicts a crowd of men and boys jeering at a passing parade of Suffragettes, the name given to women who were then agitating for women to be given the vote. Originally published in 1912 in Collier's Magazine with the caption "Aw, Susie, be them dishes washed," Sloan's original title perhaps better captures the sense of entitlement that was the exclusive province of men in the years before the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment in 1919.

"Aw, Susie, be them dishes washed?"
