Description:

Woman Worker (or Nomunkas in Hungarian) is a 1918 vintage Hungarian newspaper advertising and women's suffrage propaganda poster designed by Mihaly Biro.

This is an important piece of historical propaganda for the women's suffrage movement. Woman Worker (Nomunkas in Hungarian) was a journal that was focusing on women's rights and women's participation in leftist, social democratic movements. On the other hand, the poster was also used as a propaganda poster on women's protest rallies in 1918 for women's suffrage and other women's rights. Evidence of this can be seen in the photo that is from a Biro exhibition catalogue, and showa a women' protest in 1918 with copies of the the Nomunkas poster behind the crowd.
