Vintage Anti-Suffrage Posters & Propaganda

With the passage of the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution in 1920, women were formally given the right to vote: “The right of citizens of the United States to vote are not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of sex.” This was the culmination of over a century of hotly contested advocacy and debate in the American public on women’s suffrage. Below are some examples of anti-suffrage posters and illustration with most focusing on the ruinous consequences for the American household and family if women were given the right to vote:
