Overview

rThe fight for women's rights worldwide has been one of the great power struggles of the twentieth century, and its graphic expression has been central to this battle. Suffragettes to She-Devils captures the excitement of women's revolutionary campaigns and movements from the vibrant visual identity of the militant suffragettes, through the humour and sniping of the cartoons of Women's Lib in the sixties, to the virtual-reality explorations of end-of-the-century cyberfeminists. It studies the developing role of graphics and related media in the struggle for women's liberation, focusing on the way women have used graphics as a tool for their empowerment - finding a voice through visual or graphic means.
