Woman Suffrage Objection Banner

image for Woman Suffrage Objection Banner
One half of a set of Woman Suffrage Objection and Answer Banners. This banner was used in White House pickets supporting woman’s suffrage.
These banners took some of what suffragists considered the most ridiculous objections to woman suffrage and pointed out their folly using disarming humor. This set paired the Objection, "It would make women less attractive to men" with the Answer "If to be attractive means to be silly and irresponsible Yes. It depends on what you like."
