In celebration of Women’s History Month, we’ve picked out a handful of satirical suffrage rhymes published by The Woman Suffrage Party in 1912, alongside their tongue in cheek illustrations.
Since the late 20th century, March has been celebrated as Women’s History Month, an annual celebration of women’s contributions to society and culture.
The Women’s Suffrage movement began in the mid-19th century and sought to change the voting laws to give women the right to vote. Spearheaded by The National Woman Suffrage Association, founded in 1869, their plans for social reform and political equality spread worldwide and finally succeeded in England in the early 1900s, when laws were passed granting women the right to vote (1928).
