Lecture Description

This presentation, enhanced by many primary source cartoons and other visuals, seeks to understand the challenges faced by suffragists and anti-suffragists in their respective movements. Political cartoons often succinctly expressed the arguments for and against women’s enfranchisement. Cartoons highlight the criticisms suffragists and anti-suffragists faced from a fickle public, too often eager to deride both groups for their political activism.
