Bunny comes home to find a suffrage meeting in his house and raises quite a rumpus about it. but he has to go away to a meeting of the "fat men's" club, where he listens with approval to an anti-suffrage speaker.

There are amusing incidents
24 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

This is the picture for the making of which John Bunny and Rose Tapley journeyed to Washington last March and participated in the Suffragette parade. But by me means is this the chief incident. There is a good plot, and in its working out there are amusing incidents. Bunny is a member of the Fat Men's Club which is anti-Suffrage. Consequently when its members see Bunny in the camp of its enemies there is consternation. They don't know of course, that whereas Bunny had formerly believed women had not enough brain capacity to qualify them for the ballot, he had so many times been helped out of business difficulties by the excellent judgment of his wife that he had changed his mind. The picture is well made. - The Moving Picture World, October 11, 1913
