Suffragettes to She Devils: Women's Liberation and Beyond

sold out




The fight for women's rights has been one of the great struggles of the last century, and its graphic expression has been central to this battle. Suffragettes to She-Devils captures the excitement of revolutionary campaigns and movements, from the vibrant visual identity of the militant Suffragettes, through the humour and sniping of the cartoons of 1960s Women's Lib, to the virtual-reality explorations of end-of-the-century cyberfeminists. It explores the developing role of graphics and related media in the struggle for women's liberation.

This book covers a wide and international range of issues including women and war work; 1950's consumerism; women's rights in the workplace; gay rights and gay pride; and questions of identity, race, violence, health and welfare.
