Picturing Political Power with Professor Allison Lange

Presented by Wayland Free Public Library at Wayland Free Public Library, Wayland MA

Picturing Political Power with Professor Allison Lange

Prof. Lange will discuss her forthcoming book: Picturing Political Power: Images in the Women’s Suffrage Movement, exploring how women’s rights activists and their opponents used images to define gender and power during the suffrage movement.

For as long as women have battled for equitable political representation in America, those battles have been defined by images—whether illustrations, engravings, photographs, or colorful chromolithograph posters. Some of these pictures have been flattering, many have been condescending, and others downright incendiary. They have drawn upon prevailing cultural ideas of women’s perceived roles and abilities and often have been circulated with pointedly political objectives.
