A photorealistically rendered pacifier takes up the entire picture space. On it perches a fly. The baby’s pacifier thus becomes a symbol for neglected children—neglected because their mothers are out dabbling in politics. When it first appeared, Donald Brun’s (1909–1999) poster met with resistance. Claire Bächlin wrote in the magazine Vorwärts that it was an insult “to all women who are not only in charge of a household but also have to work outside the home and are still able to keep their children clean and raise them to be healthy people.”
