Virginia Association Opposed to Woman's Suffrage, Broadside, 1910s

Context

For a majority of American history, women were not allowed to vote. Although they were considered citizens with rights equal to men, voting was considered a privilege and not a right and thus legally kept away from women. In the 1910s, women became extremely vocal about their lack of ability to vote, but not all women supported the fight for suffrage.
