Contemporary postcard

Cartoon (drawn by a man) stereotypes Suffragettes as bitter old crones engaged in a gender-war against men.

I regard women as superior and I don’t like to see them trying to become men’s equal.

Miss Violet Markham, speaking in October 1910

I know these images very well and use them in all lectures on the suffragette era. They are still quite powerful today.
