Woman's Burden Across the Ages. Socialist Labor Party, Blamire Young, Australia.

Woman's Burden Across the Ages.

Sydney: Workers Print, St. Andrew's Place, 1929. First printing. Ephemera. A broadside issued by the Socialist Labor Party of Australia illustrated with a discouraging image by Blamire Young of the woman, in six stages of her life, struggling to manage a mule on a blanket. "Socialism is woman's only hope. The Socialist Labor Party is transforming the mules into men. Women! Assist the great cause..." The image is enough to make you forswear marriage, issued at a time when Dr. Marie Stopes was advocating contraception.

Small discoloration from tape residue, with a crescent shaped gap in the margin on the left. Period folds have stressed some of the text clarity. Somewhat creased but acceptably so.
