Factory Acts poster, 1908

Factory Acts poster, 1908, originally uploaded by CarolinaRen.

“They have a cheek I’ve never been ask” (Not sure about the grammar on this — shouldn’t it be “They have a cheek; I’ve never been asked”?)

From my previously reference box of free cards (there’s a lot of them, so stay tuned!): “In the 19th century, factory legislation restricting women’s working lives had been passed without any reference to the women themselves. This poster makes the point that Parliament had to be made accountable to the female electorate.” Published by the Museum of London.
