Actually, I want to focus here on the anti-Suffragette backlash. Around the turn of the
1920th century, women advocating for the equal right to vote and to get elected in western democracies were often depicted in a negative and derogative fashion by both male and female opponents of equal suffrage. Here are a few examples:

On Nov. 1, 1872, Susan B. Anthony convinced officials in Rochester, N.Y., to allow her to register to vote, arguing down their objections and threatening to sue them if they refused. Anthony cast a vote in the Nov. 5 election, selecting the straight Republican ticket, headed by Ulysses S. Grant. This is the indictment Anthony was served the next January, in which a grand jury charged her with knowingly voting “without having a lawful right to vote … the said Susan B. Anthony being then and there a person of the female sex.” Judge Hunt fined Anthony $100, to which she protested “I will never pay a dollar of your unjust penalty.” The state found no assets to seize, and the fine was never paid.
