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.
