How posters helped raise awareness of women's rights movements - I

For more than two centuries, it has become customary to use posters to raise awareness, convey and spread messages, and gain support and influence public opinion. Posters, usually printed in large dimensions and as a combination of images and words, are a rich form of visual arts that showcase global concerns, popular taste, and artistic and technological advances.

To create a poster, the designer can use various visual elements such as symbols, writings, illustrations, diagrams and photos. But in the end, what is important in designing a poster is clear and quick messaging.

Women’s suffrage movement in Britain

New Zealand was the first country to recognize women’s right to vote in 1893. But the participation and presence of women in the cultural, political, social and economic fields of the First World War and its consequences had a significant impact on the presence of women in society. Until then, most of the opponents were against giving them the right to vote with arguments such as women’s inexperience in social affairs and their behavioral instability. The poster was an important medium used by both groups of supporters and opponents of women’s suffrage to advance their goals.
