By grouping postcards thematically, elements begin to show which can be heightened to also form a timeline.
For example, I have a large collection of these postcards and I notice that the tweed half-jacket "mannish women", designed to ridicule and hinder suffrage, disappears during WW1. It seems that message contradicted the real world need for women to work "mannish" jobs during the WW1 labor shortage and so was abandoned. Admonitions such as a woman "doing men's work" would develop a man's tastes (resulting in lesbianism) failed and with them went the last barrier to the vote.
In the spirit of historical co-operation, I am submitting the following dates for some of the cards posted which I have from my collection. Hopefully, other people can come together and submit their information as well so we can build a definitive collection.
Masculine Woman cr 1905
Mollycoddle Series pm 1908 (all 5 in series)
Mannish Maid pm 1908
Miss Mannish pm 1909
A Counter-Part pm 1910
