This 1918 marriage advice for Suffragettes is a little …controversial
It can’t have been easy to defy convention in 1918, when society had a much narrower view of what was and wasn’t acceptable, but the Suffragettes did just that, with the aim of achieving votes for women. Although the movement wasn’t confined to women, it was certainly driven by them and they had some pretty strong views about the gender they viewed as their oppressors.
This leaflet, currently on display in the Pontypridd Museum in Wales, gives what can only be described as radical advice about marriage.
We’ve all heard “The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach”, but we now present the Suffragette version “If you want him to be happy, Feed the Brute.”
Not everybody was happy with the imagery, and not for the reasons you might expect.
One woman saw straight through the subtext.
