Brown Bag Pictures and Progress: The Politics of Images in the Woman Suffrage Movement 11 July 2012.Wednesday, 12:00PM - 1:00PM Allison Lange, Brandeis University

This talk will examine the visual culture of the woman suffrage movement. Lange’s research shows that images, from engravings and lithographs to photographs and halftones, shaped Americans' conceptions of gender and women's relationships to politics.  Her project analyzes how suffrage supporters and detractors used these powerful visuals to promote their political causes.
