Celebrate your right to vote with the Suffrage Cat poster. This poster is a reproduction of an anti-suffrage poster used during the Women's Suffrage Movement in the 1910s. The Suffrage Cat is the source of everything from the idea of the cat lady to a woman acting catty. The comparison of a woman to a cat was to show not only a woman's delicacy and passivity, but to illustrate the ridiculousness of a woman voting being on par with a cat voting. Suffragists took back the power of the symbol in 1916 when Alice Burke and Nell Richardson went on a cross-country tour to promote the movement with a black kitten they named Saxon. They also began illustrating their own cartoons with the Suffrage Cat. Honor the suffragists, cat ladies, and independent women that came before with this historical poster.
