Propaganda of Yesteryear
Here is a sample of the public ridiculde these women were faced with. This cartoon that ran in Life magazine depicts American suffragists "as they are", how "they think they are" and as "they appear to police and shopkeepers."

The heading for the cartoon is "militants."

It's nearly 100 hundred years later and many gains have been won. Still, not that much has changed.
