Description: This anti-suffrage postcard proclaims "Life is Just One Damn Thing After Another." It shows a disgruntled husband having to take care of the baby and making dinner, presumably while his wife is away voting. The female photograph on the wall behind him is labeled "Our Presidentess." The postcard references one of the most frequent arguments of those who opposed women's suffrage, which was that suffrage would cause women to neglect their duties in the home. It is addressed to George Stanigan of Columbus, Pennsylvania, from his sister, Lizzie, and was received on August 13, 1910. View on Ohio Memory.
