Fake News – My Sunday Photo – 24/06/18

Hello everyone. My photo post for this week is unusually for me just a single picture. It was taken last week at my sister in laws wedding reception.

The reception was held at a rather lovely old mill in the outskirts of Bristol. The mill is currently holding an exhibition celebrating the Suffregettes. There were lots of photos of the Pankhurts and a fascinating timeline detailing the progression of womens fight for the right to vote.

There was one poster in the display that was very at odds with the rest of the exhibition.

The poster reminded me alot of the fake news that is often found on Facebook and Twitter these days.

    I’m pleased to say this sort of thinking is firmly in the past. I hope so anyway! #Mysundayphoto

    There is always an opposing view, but I can see what you mean. There must have been some women who would be swayed by something like this, some who were happy to be dominated by men and content with continuing to do as they were expected. Of course it would be the better path to oppose these awful women who were trying to change the way of thinking and give women a voice.
    Thank goodness those women were in the minority.

    It definitely is a bit different isn’t it? I’d love to see the exhibition though, it must have been a very hard time to live as a woman fighting for more rights. (And a big congrats to your sister in law)

    Ah, now this reminds me of the Ulster Covenant. Goes back about 100 years, give or take. Men signed the Covenant registering their disapproval of Ireland getting its own parliament. Women, however, had to sign a pledge supporting the men who had signed the covenant. How times change. #mysundayphoto

    Sometimes it’s good to see another angle whether you agree with it or not.
