The Lady and the Tiger, 11/07/1917
This cartoon by Clifford K. Berryman depicts the two big winners on New York’s Election Day, 1917 — Women’s Suffrage, and the Tammany Hall political machine, represented by the Tammany Tiger. While some states allowed women to vote, no national law guaranteed women that right until the 19th Amendment to the Constitution was ratified in 1920.
