Suffrage was a highly divisive and controversial issue in Western society not so long ago, and if you think it’s scary to challenge the status quo today, just imagine how it was 100 years ago.

These people were afraid of giving women the right to vote and they thought that it will somehow ruin the world and the progress that was made. Well, they were wrong!
The mocking images and ads that we have here still look familiar, even today, as many feminists are often depicted as irrational and neurotic. Check out some of the worst ads against women’s suffrage below.
