"The Awakening" is an illustration from 1915 that holds deep symbolism and depicts a transformative moment in the women's suffrage movement. At the forefront of the artwork stands a resolute female figure, holding a torch emblazoned with the words "Votes for Women." She represents the embodiment of women's collective awakening to the desire for suffrage, a powerful symbol of their demand for equal rights. Her stride takes her across the western states, where women had already achieved the right to vote, towards the eastern states where women are depicted reaching out to her, symbolizing their growing aspiration for suffrage.
Beneath the thought-provoking cartoon, a poem penned by Alice Duer Miller adds further depth and emotional resonance to the artwork. The poem offers poignant words that echo the spirit of the suffrage movement and its quest for justice and equality.
