The early-20th-century campaign against women’s rights produced a series of posters that MessyNessyChic has collected. They’re pretty outrageous, and one of them I find downright horrifying. But it’s instructive to get a sense of the bold misogyny demonstrated by the media and the public in those heady days of conflict. The presentation of women and women’s rights was astonishingly crude.

The poster above is from Puck, 1908. Others can be viewed at the link above. (And then, look around; it’s a fascinating site.)
