This cartoon depicts the "snowballing" effect of the women's suffrage movement, starting small but gathering support and growing larger, in part due to the publication of women's rights newspapers, until it resulted in the right to vote for women as embodied in the 19th Amendment to the Constitution in 1920. It shows a man in a top hat and coat who at first laughs at the small movement, and then runs from it as it gains in size and rolls toward him.
