The Awakening,

EDITORS COMMENTS
a powerful and iconic illustration published in Puck magazine on February 20, 1915, captures the essence of the growing women's suffrage movement in the United States. The illustration depicts a torch-bearing female figure labeled "Votes for Women," symbolizing the awakening of women across the nation to the desire for the right to vote. With determination and resolve, she strides confidently across the western states, where women had already gained suffrage, and reaches out to those in the east, still fighting for the same right. The image is a poignant representation of the growing awareness and activism among women, who were becoming increasingly vocal and organized in their demand for political representation. The torch, a symbol of enlightenment and progress, underscores the idea that the women's suffrage movement was a beacon of hope and change, illuminating the path toward greater gender equality. Printed below the illustration is a poem by Alice Duer Miller, titled "The Awakening," which further emphasizes the theme of awakening and the power of women's collective voice. The poem reads: "Awaken, O sleeper, rouse! The dawn is at hand, The night is past, the long night of shame is over. Arise and take your place in the sunlit land, Where men and women, hand in hand, shall labor. Awaken, O sleeper, rouse! The dawn is at hand, And in your heart the seed of womanhood is sown. Awake, my sister, and with me take a stand, And let us march together to the throne." This powerful combination of image and verse encapsulates the spirit of the women's suffrage movement and the hope and determination that fueled it. The illustration and poem serve as a reminder of the progress that has been made and the ongoing struggle for gender equality, inspiring us to continue the fight for a more just and equitable world.
