Now that we have a woman running for president, it seems ridiculous that suffragettes had to fight to get the right to vote less than 100 years ago. In the 1900s, the suffrage movement was lambasted and ridiculed. These posters show how sexist people were when women wanted to expand the right to vote. They illustrate suffragettes as old maids, promiscuous, and women who emasculate their husbands. Some flat out show them being bound, gagged, and tortured. These are the posters from the 1900s warned about the "dangers of women's rights."
