Lodge, Nevile Sidney, 1918-1989, Evening Post (Wellington, N.Z.)

A man wearing an apron and waving a dishmop complains to his wife that just because she is now earning more than he is it does not mean that he has to take a subordinate role in the household, i.e. performing all the household duties. His wife is smiling happily, relaxing in an easy chair in the sitting room, reading the newspaper, with a glass of beer and a free-standing ashtray beside her. Another, older woman, is sitting opposite her reading a magazine, also looking smug. At top left of the cartoon is quoted the headline 'State pay rise puts typist above the tradesman'. Exhibited in 'Harpies & Heroines: A cartoon history of the changing roles of women in New Zealand' Exhibition curated by Rachel Macfarlane and Cerridwyn Young of the New Zealand Cartoon Archive and exhibited at the National Library Gallery, 11 July - 26 October 2003. Published in 'Harpies & Heroines' book published by the New Zealand Cartoon Archive in 2003. Quantity: 1 original cartoon(s). Physical Description: Black ink, letratone and pencil 250 x 280 mm
