This suffragette propaganda poster was designed by Catherine Courtauld in 1912. Sister of Samuel, founder of the Courtauld Institute of Art, Catherine was a member of the Suffrage Atelier, a group of artists based in Shepherd's Bush, west London, who produced handmade prints and stencils to promote the 'Votes for Women' campaign. The Anti-Suffrage Ostrich, shown burying its head, refers to the 'stupidity' and 'ignorance' of the anti-suffrage campaign that continued to deny the women's freedom that is rising on the horizon.
1908 AD - 1924 AD
