1912 :Poster designed and printed at Shephers's Bush, London, by the Suffrage Atelier, a group of artists who used art to promote Votes for Women. It was founded in 1909 'to encourage Artists to forward the Women's Movement, and particularly the Enfranchisement of Women, by means of pictorial publications.' The poster contrasts 'worthy' females denied the vote, like teachers and factory workers, with 'unworthy' males, like convicts and lunatics, who retained the right to vote.

This is a promotional poster by the Suffragette Atelier for their Votes for Women campaign highlighting that while that women held roles in society such as doctors, they were not entitled to vote.
