'Two Girls of The Period', 1869. 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 20, 1869.
