Yiddish cartoon commenting on Goldman's advocacy of free access to birth control

Yiddish cartoon commenting on Goldman's advocacy of free access to birth control

Under the words "Emma Earns Her Punishment," this cartoon shows Goldman being led into prison by a police officer. The figure at the right is labeled a "sweat-shop boss," and the paper at Goldman's feet reads: "Lecture: How to protect from too many children." The caption at the bottom has the sweat-shop boss saying: "Hear this scandal! I need kids to work and she preaches against children! To prison with her!"
