This 1908 image of women smoking and drinking was intended to be a horrifying glimpse of a post-suffrage future. Now it just looks like an awesome bar.
Ladies will please refrain from throwing cigar butts in the free lunch.
Okay first of all, the artist’s name is Harry Grant Dart, and I’m going to go google him right now, because this illustration is beautiful and I want more of his work in my life.
Secondly, the description of the image on the website this picture is taken from says this:
The above cartoon posits that gaining the same rights as men had, would result in women sinking — in imitation — to the moral character of men.
"Sinking to the moral character of men." So, by drawing this (and reading it and supporting its ideas) men were essentially claiming that women have higher morals than they do. And men think they don’t need feminism. *facepalm*
Lastly, were this a real place, I would hang out there every day.
