History is full of strange facts. A woman leading a corporation or running a country is not at all strange now. But back in the 20th-century men were too afraid to give a woman any freedom other than household jobs.

The following are vintage postcards used by men in 20th-century, part of a propaganda against women’s rights. Many of them portray the changes that would bring in the family life. They considered women’s rights not just disagreeable but outright dangerous.
