No Votes Thank You, The Appeal of Womanhood - picture postcard

This postcard, designed by Harold Bird, announces an anti-suffrage meeting at the Royal Albert Hall. It was produced as propaganda for the anti-suffrage campaign by the National League for Opposing Woman Suffrage. The central figure represents a 'Womanly Woman': wearing a feminine dress and flowers in her hair, she politely refuses the vote. Behind her is the suffragette depicted as the 'hysteric' or the 'shrieking sister', inelegantly leaping towards parliament brandishing a hammer. The postcard was sent to Lillian M Slade in 1912.
