dc.description.abstract A distinguished-looking man is crowning a woman with a laurel wreath. One of the main arguments of male opposition against the suffragettes was that the working women would tend to neglect their families. The anti-feminist writers and draftsmen of the Charivari were true followers of the trend (from the masculine point of view). In nearly 60 plates of the series LES BAS BLEUS, LES DIVORCEUSES and LES FEMMES SOCIALISTES, Daumier ridiculed the feminist movement, concentrating however mainly on the new system’s high priestesses and their silly followers. At the end of the series, he turns the joke upon himself, when some bluestockings bitterly complain that his caricatures had maligned them.
