A scarce and highly unusual children's book in that it treats of a topical political issue, in this case 'Votes for Women'. Kathleen Ainslie took her inspiration from Florence Upton and her The Adventures of Two Dutch Dolls (origin of Golliwogg). She produced her own series featuring two dolls, Catharine Susan and the first person narrator. Apart from this title, they were fairly ordinary adventures, imbued however with a deal of humour. The end of this story is that the girls 'go home quietly" , home that is, from jail, where they end up after various scrapes, including fights with the police. They were quickly tired of prison life, and were freed following a visit by the Home Secretary.
