Two Girls of The Period This cartoon shows a fashionable protestant convert to Catholicism looking in horror at the Catholic nun This is a reference to the Mary Saurin case where a nun had taken action against her convent for having forced her to carry out such menial and manual tasks as scrubbing floors However the Protestant faith relied much on a relationship with God based on their works yet in this cartoon the convert is shown as interested in little but her clothes and hair So this picture not only presents a negative view of Catholicism but a negative view of the shallowness of women of fashion From Punch or the London Charivari February
