1910: Suffragette Madonnas

Suffragette Madonna 2     Suffragette Madonna 1

The message of these anti-suffrage postcards is that if women have the right to vote, society will be turned upsidedown and men will become feminized, forced to do the women’s work of taking care of babieshow horrible! Although these images of fathers as caretakers might have seemed ridiculous at the time, I now find them endearing and oddly compelling. (sources here and here)
