This cartoon, captioned 'MARY HAD A LITTLE LAMB', features the Queensland premier Robert Philp (1851-1922) as a butcher of the 'Democratic Butchering Co'. As he sharpens his knife a small girl approaches bearing the initials WEFA (Women's Equal Franchise Association) on her coat. She leads a lamb with 'A VOTE FOR WOMEN' on its back. Carcasses hanging in the shop represent the failure of campaigns for one vote per man and early closing of shops. The cartoon is from the 11 August 1900 edition of the Qld federated unions' newspaper, The Worker.
