This cartoon provides another example of the ways suffragists portrayed their opponents. What can you infer from this depiction of the choir? Notice that the singers all have titles: "White "Slaver," "Anti," "Big Biz," and "Liquor."

Their repertoire "includes all the familiar sophistical melodies; 'Protect the Home,' 'Sweet Woman's Sphere's the Home,' 'Keep Your Dear Mother Out of Politics,' 'Oh, Leave Things As They be,' 'Let the Woman Mind the Baby,' 'Let 'Em Use Their Influence,' etc., etc., etc."
