What Men Imagined The Women's Suffrage Movement Would Be Like (42 Pics)

Women's suffrage, the legal right of women to vote. Women's suffrage first began in 1848, when a women's rights convention was held in Seneca Falls, New York. 

And from the moment the word spread, the men dramatically feared the worst... stepping into their wives shoes. 

Must have been so awful being a housewife. Considering all the men who created these illustrations displaying their worst nightmare, becoming the housewife themselves. Oh, the absolute horror.

Housewife Article From 1955 Titled 'The Good Wife’s Guide' Is Embarrassing

"The Good Wife's Guide" was originally published May 13th, 1955, in a magazine called, "Housekeeping Monthly." 

As the title of the article suggests, these 18 bullet points is the guideline on how to be a "good wife." From nonstop house chores to pampering your husband and never ever questioning anything he says and does. 

Really?

This article reminds us of another hilarious article from 1958 on how to find a husband.

Thank goodness times have changed because these 18 bullet points sound unbearable.

Some Japan Companies Are Enforcing A 'No Glasses' Rule For Women

In an article published by Bloomberg, it was revealed that some Japan companies are barring women from wearing glasses in the workplace. 

Did I just read that correctly? Wait, let me put on my glasses. 

Such a simple and obvious necessity you wouldn't even think twice about, yet some Japan companies are banning the necessity -- soley for aesthetic purposes. 

Japan Nippon TV aired the story that has since gone viral and received tons of response. 

Japanese women are now fighting for the right to wear glasses to work. The hashtag #glassesban was trending, women sharing selfies of themselves wearing the apparently offending eyewear. 

Ishikawa, who has started a petition signed by more than 31,000 supporters who agree standing in heels all day should not be a job requirement for female workers had this to say about the situation, "If wearing glasses is a real problem at work it should be banned for everyone -- men and women. This problem with glasses is the exact same as high heels. It's only a rule for female workers."

Right on, Ishikawa! We stand with you, women of Japan.

NASA Woman Claps Back At Dude Assuming She's Just The Receptionist

Yikes. Planetary Scientist, Dr. Lauren Mc Keown, shared an short and painful conversation she had on the dating app Hinge. The man who messaged Dr. Mc Keown seemed to have a strong opening line, bringing up how incredibly cool it was that she works at NASA (and honestly, it literally can't get any cooler than that), but soon ruins any chance being demeaning her intelligence and assuming she's the receptionist. 

Excuse me

Even though he 'claims' it was a joke, we totally stand behind Dr. Mc Keown's response.

Celebrity Photographer Accused of Asking Model for Nude Pics in Exchange for Free Photo Shoot

Yuck. However, this story just gets more muddy when you find out the details. 

Marcus Hyde, is photographer who got his big break after shooting Kim Kardashian. Since then, he's worked with a number of stars, including Ariana Grande, who has since spoken out about this incident. 

The light that lit the fuse comes from Instagram model, Sunnaya, who revealed some disturbing screenshots of her conversation with the photographer. In the screenshots (which you can see here via Sunnaya's Twitter), Marcus is offering Sunnaya a free photo shoot, ONLY if she sends him nudes. And if she wants the photo shoot without sending him nudes? It costs 2k. 

She refused and tried to call Hyde out on Instagram, but Instagram has reportedly flagged the screenshots as 'bullying' with each upload.

Frustrated, Sunnaya has taken to Twitter to share the screenshots, along with other dm's of various models who are sharing their stories about Marcus Hyde. 

Read their stories below:

Artist Illustrates How Adults Encourage Sexism Among Young Boys And it is Thought Provoking

We all know children learn by copying/following the adults around them. So, when we display bad/toxic behavior in front of our children, it slowly starts developing in them too. But, there's something many of us do that goes unnoticed—nurturing sexism in young boys. For example, by telling their sons that certain things are exclusively for "girls" and doing them would also make them "girly." To address this topic better, artist Damian Alexander used his artistic illustrations to explain how adults encourage sexism in young boys through every day small talk. For more, check out his Instagram page as well as his home page.
