'The Anti-Suffrage Society As Dressmaker', produced by the Suffrage Atelier, as propaganda for the pro-women's suffrage campaign. The Anti-Suffrage Society was satirised in suffrage propaganda as the A.S.S. Here the A.S.S. fits an anti-suffragist with a dress and crinoline which is too short and decades out of date. Many jokes were made about 'Antis': they were represented as behind the times, unable to understand modern life.
