Before the 19th amendment came along in 1920, only men could cast votes in an election. The fight for women’s rights was long and hard, and the suffragists were met with plenty of opposition from people who believed that women couldn’t handle the responsibility of voting.

These posters and postcards depict some of the rampant sexism that raged during the suffragist movement, and man oh man (pun intended?), are they ridiculous.
