  • Satirical picture postcard captioned "The Suffragette Nails her Colours to the Mast". Here the suffragette is depicted as a masculine woman wearing manly clothing including a pork pie hat, this being at the time a direct reference to lesbianism. Those opposing female suffrage regarded suffragettes not only as a political, but also as a sexual threat.
