Full image caption

This pro-suffrage propaganda postcard was designed by the artist Catherine Courtauld in 1912. The sister of Samuel, who created the Courtauld Institute of Art, Catherine was a member of the Suffrage Atelier, a group of artists who used art to promote the Votes for Women campaign. This design addresses the issue of 'separate spheres' still prevalent in the early 20th century, where men and women took on different roles in society. Women were expected to play no part in the public 'sphere', their role being focused on the domestic 'sphere' as wives, mothers and sisters.
