'Why we oppose votes for men'
Purchased in 1999
Alice Duer Miller was an American novelist and poet who was active in the United States’ campaign for women’s suffrage. Dating from 1915, this poster shows how ridiculous some of the arguments against women’s suffrage were by applying them to men. The American constitution was changed in 1920 with the passing of the 19th amendment which granted women the right to vote. In the lead up to the 2016 US presidential elections, some Donald Trump supporters have said that if women were not allowed to vote, Trump would win.
