Full image caption

This satirical anti-suffrage postcard depicts the abandoned child of a suffragette. A poem on the back reads: 'Mummy is a Suffragette/ And I am no one's pet/ Oh! Why am I left all alone/ To cry and suffer yet.'
The postcard expresses a stereotypical view held by those opposing female suffrage that, in committing themselves to the votes for women cause, suffragettes had inevitably abandoned their domestic responsibilities and become bad mothers and neglectful wives.
