research and other wanderings - see my website! There are comics and a store and everything: Hark! A Vagrant
Here is a collection of anti suffragette posters, postcards and cartoons. They’re old, and comically out of date, but looking at them gives me something like despair, because as a woman today I cannot imagine facing that attitude, and fighting it.  Going out there and demanding better, and getting this kind of … unbelievable ignorance and intolerance in your face.  This article with images has also been making the rounds.   Heck, here’s another collection that links to even more collections.
I can’t believe that in 2012 I read about an American congressman who really believes that women’s bodies have a way of shutting down pregnancy if they are “really” raped.  I cannot believe a lot of the things I have seen come out in American news lately.  I can’t believe that the person who posted those images on “A History of Feminism” probably agrees with them, judging by the other content there (don’t worry, I saw it. I don’t care about giving them traffic though).
You are voting today, right?
As Rose Winslow wrote from prison in 1917:
"All the officers here know we are making this hunger strike that women fighting for liberty may be considered political prisoners; we have told them. God knows we don’t want other women ever to have to do this over again."
