Women's Suffrage Procession, Mary Lanchester, Color Woodcut 1910, The British Museum

Political cartoons, propaganda posters, and protest banners constituted political action and fought stigmatizing societal attitudes, thus serving as a conduit for change to break the barriers that denied women the vote.
