Images and the Fight for American Women’s Voting Rights

November 14 @ 5:45 pm - 7:00 pm

In response to popular anti-woman’s rights cartoons that dominated nineteenth-century America, suffragists developed a national visual campaign to re-define ideas of gender, power, and politics in the US. In this talk, historian Allison K. Lange will speak about the ways that suffragists used visual culture in the fight to win the vote.

Doors open at 5:00 pm; come early to view our exhibits! Talk begins at 5:45 pm.
