These Anti-Suffragette Posters Show The “Dangers” Of Women’s Rights (30 Pics)

Published 1 week ago

These days, women going to vote sounds like a completely normal thing. But things were a lot more different a hundred years ago. Back then, laws forbade women to vote and the fight for this right was not only long and hard but also followed by a lot of ridicule from the opposite sex. And it was during that time that the suffragette movement was formed.

Suffragettes were members of women’s organizations, more specifically the British Women’s Social and Political Union (WSPU), who fought for their right to vote in public elections. The movement was founded back in 1903 by British political activist Emmeline Pankhurst and initially, the women didn’t call themselves suffragettes. The term was coined by British newspaper Daily Mail and was used to belittle the women, however, the activists quickly adopted the name and even used it to name their newspaper.

The movement was met with a lot of criticism from men and some artists even started creating anti-suffragette posters showing the “dangers” of women’s rights. Check out these vintage propaganda posters in the gallery below!

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
