This photo was labeled "Suffragette" and was probably taken to show that suffragettes were good mothers and wives, but I'm thinking that this woman was a suffragette (which at the time usually included a woman's right to vote as well as other women's rights) because she wanted no more children. After all, it looks like she has seven already. And, knowing the history of my own family at this time, she probably had a couple of stillbirths and miscarriages as well.

Stand up and be counted! It's hard on a woman's body to populate the earth! LOL
