In commemoration of the 93rd anniversary of the August 18, 1920 ratification of the 19th Amendment, the magazine The Week published this selection of anti-suffragette cartoons. The portrayals of suffragettes range from incapable of loving or being loved to shirking the duties of womanhood, i.e. cleaning and childcare.
