The Spectacle of Women: Imagery of the Suffrage Campaign 1907-14

Front Cover
University of Chicago Press, Mar 31, 1988 - Political Science - 334 pages
Too "artistic" for political history, too political for the history of art, the visual history of the campaign for women's suffrage in Britain has long been neglected. In this comprehensive and pathbreaking study, Lisa Tickner discusses and illustrates the suffragist use of spectacle—the design of banners, posters and postcards, the orchestration of mass demonstrations—in an unprecedented propaganda campaign.
