Side-By-Side of the Women’s March vs. Women’s Suffrage Movement Shows How Far Feminism Has Fallen

According to the participants of last Saturday’s Women’s March, one may assert that the only way to convey seriousness about women’s rights is to display vulgarity in huge proportions.

It was no surprise that these feminists’ grievances were largely directed at President Donald Trump during the march, given comments he’s made about some women in the past.

As of late, feminists have used every opportunity possible to simultaneously protest Trump and broadcast their apparent fascination with the female anatomy, and they used the Women’s March as the ultimate opportunity to air it. However, perhaps those proudly donning the “Nasty Woman” label and oversized, handmade vaginas could learn a thing or two from the classier approach of the suffrage movement, which peaked in the 1920s.

Independent Journal Review compiled photos from the Women’s Rights Movement of the early 1900s and compared them with photos of the Women’s March that took place earlier this week. Take a look at them side-by-side, and gauge for yourself which group of women best emulates female empowerment.
