Description
Typographical arrangement warning women not to meddle in masculine concerns. Exhibited in 'I protest', poster exhibition in Alexander Turnbull Library foyer, Feb-April 1997. Date is November 1902 - see extract in the 'New Zealand free lance' 22 November 1902, page 6: "I wonder who "Henry Wright" is? He has issued a circular to "Epicene Women," who are interested in the elections, asking them not to call on him, but to stay at home and cook their husbands' dinners, and other things. Evidently a woman hater. Oh well, it is delightful to have such frank gentlemen living in Wellington. I am interested in the elections but I shall not call for "Henry Wright's" vote. There appears to be nothing epicene about him". Quantity: 1 b&w art print(s). Physical Description: Letterpress, 340 x 212 mm.
