Lloyd, Trevor 1863-1937 :The lady in the case. 20 September 1933

Reference Number: B-115-020

Shows coalition partners J G Coates and G W Forbes reacting with shock to the appearance of Mrs Elizabeth McCombs, 1st woman M P, who took office 13 Sep 1933. Behind Mrs McCombs is an indignant jack-in the box figure, representing the Maori race, some of whom had objected to women in Parliament. The Maori figure is marked 'their troubles' and has appeared at the same time as Mrs McCombs, out of the box, but is much larger and more threatening than Mrs McCombs, and hence more of a problem to the Government
