The incredible propaganda against women’s suffrage of the years 1900 – 1914

All social advances, from the abolition of slavery to the recognition of women’s rights, were always broken by the conservatism and traditional values. I propose you today a selection of vintage postcard illustrations of the years 1900 – 1914, from the propaganda used against the women’s suffrage and the suffragettes, where change is presented as a direct attack against the values of the family and the place of man in society, sending husbands back at home to look after the children… These incredible images are from the collections of professors Catherine H. Palczewski and June Purvis.
