And whose pocket are

you picking? I'm sorry.

I thought maybe the monster

had struck again.

It would be an easy thing for him

to do with me sleeping in the park.

The monster murders

time and again...

and never a trace of him

have they found.

I know. They don't know

whether he's a man or an animal.

Might even be a woman.

It's possible, you know.

Of course I know. My

wife's a monster to me.

She's joined them


Do you believe in women voting?

No, I can't say that I do.

Ladies, gentlemen.

Listen to the story

of the neglected, abused...

and unappreciated women

of today.

You got bats

in your belfry.

Hire a hall. Why don't you join the Army?

Yeah, if you want to vote like

men, why don't you fight like men?

I'll show you rabble

that women can fight!

Go home and fight

your old man.

Come closer, everyone. Listen to

the story of downtrodden women.

Equal rights

for the women

We're practically brimmin' over

with our fight to get the vote

Equal rights for the women

no herin' and himin'

Not until we women

get the vote

You seem to think

we're silly geese

Willy-nilly-silly geese

Do you want war?

Do you want peace?

Listen, dearie,

here's the ultimatum

No more hugs,

no more kisses

The mister will miss his kisses

till we women get the vote

No more winks,

no more flirtin'

No matter how hard it's hurtin'

till we women get the vote

You great big men

out-muscle us

But you can't

out-tussle us

Our defenses will tighten

we'll keep right on fightin'

For equal rights

For the women

equal rights

Now, will all of you be kind

enough to sign our petitions...

and help us

get the right to vote?

Who'll be the first to sign?

How about you, sir?

Will you sign?

Right on the dotted line.

Thank you. We'll mail you

all our literature.

Which address do you prefer?


Otherwise, how can I mail you what I

write about your suffragette movement?

Are you sure it's the cause

you're interested in?

Naturally. 'Course I must admit that

an interview in a little quieter spot...

might make things

clearer for me.

You and your yowling females, go

back to the kitchen where you belong.

Wait a minute, fellow, you

can't talk to a lady like that.

Try and shut me up.

Stop this fighting!

Go on, hold your jaw.

Hold your own jaw!

Come on, men, let's send

them back to the kitchen.

Come on, ladies!

Stop this fight!


Stop this fight,

there's ladies present!

Stop this fighting,

I tell you. Stop this...

Now, listen, lady, that

wasn't cricket. And I don't...

I'll have no more

of this clowning around now.

I'm getting sick...



Stop this fight!

Look out, here come

some more bobbies!



Now just a minute. You're under

arrest for resisting an officer.

I'm under arrest?



Why you...

We are not criminals. I demand

that you release us at once.

She demands

that we release her.

Who is going to release us?

You're bailed out, everybody. Thank you.

You, too.

And someday, women will be able to

take their rightful place in business...

the sciences,

and the professions.

Now is there anything

I haven't told you? Yes.

Are you married?

Hey, miss, you're bailed out.

I wonder who put up the money.

I don't know.

But whoever it was,

I hate him.

I was beginning to enjoy

it in here. I'm sorry.

You, too.

Not you, or you.

Thank you.


What about us?

That's a good question.

I think I asked him a silly
