Fighting the opposition to women's suffrage

Lots of people opposed votes for women. The National league for Opposing Women's Suffrage was formed in 1910. In response to this, Cicely Hamilton, an English actress, writer, journalist, suffragist, lesbian and feminist, joined with her friends in founding the Women Writer's Suffrage League. They poked fun at opponents of women's rights in a series of satirical cartoons.
