An old meme (and an older image) has started its election-season rebirth this week on Facebook.
The image, however, is not of Susan B. Anthony or from the 1800s. Instead, it was the Daily Mirror’s front page photograph on November 19, 1910, the day after Black Friday when roughly 300 English women, protesting for voting rights, marched to the House of Commons in London.
Some have suggested that the image is of the women’s rights activist Ada Wright; however, the Daily Mirror does not identify the woman and TWS Fact Check could not find solid evidence that Wright is right.
While the image is of a suffragette being accosted by the police, the caption misidentifies the person and date.
