Full image caption

Pro-Female Suffrage propoganda poster, 'What a woman may be, and yet not have the vote. What a man may have been, & yet not lose the vote'. Designed and published by the Suffrage Atelier this poster contrasts 'worthy' women mayors, teachers, mothers, doctors, nurses, factory hands denied the vote with 'unworthy' male convicts, lunatics, white slave traders, drunkards and those unfit for service who have the right to vote.
This propagandist poster was designed and printed at the Suffrage Atelier in Shepherd's Bush, west London. The Atelier, a group of artists who used art to promote the Votes for Women campaign, was founded in London in February 1909, the aim being 'to encourage Artists to forward the Women's Movement, and particularly the Enfranchisement of Women, by means of pictorial publications.'
