'Waiting for a Living Wage', poster, produced by the Suffrage Atelier.
This poster refers to the oppressive situation of powerless women employed in factories as 'sweated labour'. A major aim of the suffrage movement was to improve the conditions of working-class women by achieving representation in parliament and trade unions.
The poster was designed by Catherine Courtauld, sister of Samuel, who created the Courtauld Institute of Art.
The Suffrage Atelier was a group of artists who used their creative skills to promote the 'Votes for Women' campaign.
