Actually nothing in these posters or, even the ones LINKED from within the
article, are from EARLY 1920s but from the LATE 1920s. There appears to be
in the page indicated the "early" 1920s one from that, which is not
'satire' but educational and addresses very specifically the subjection of
women. In case anyone wanted to know Lenin's views on religion and the
RSDLP's position toward those believers among the working class, here is an
essay where he takes on the flaming "atheists" in the movement who want
nothing more than to attack religion:

It should be noted also that Bolshevik women cadre after 1918 wore the vale
in Soviet Central Asia as to better talk with Muslim women about the
problems of Islam and their oppression by it. At no point did they make fun
or satire of Islam. At least I've not been able to find it. Obviously that
would of been ... counter-productive.
