Cartooning for Suffrage

University of New Mexico Press, 1994 - 276 páginas
Challenging conventional stereotypes of the political cartoonist, dozens of American women made cartoons advocating women's suffrage in the early twentieth century. Their compelling and imaginative cartoons, strengthened by newly established art education for women, provide incisive and vivid commentaries on suffrage issues.
Sheppard interweaves histories of the political cartoon and the suffrage movement with descriptions of the work and lives of prominent American women cartoonists. She examines the symbolism of the suffrage cartoon, the unique qualities of cartoons created by women, and relations between these images and modern feminist thought. Her narrative is enlivened with over two hundred examples of cartoon art, the result of extensive research in private and public collections.
Cartooning for Suffrage will provide a crucial framework for those who would explore and integrate these remarkable images into their work in history, art, politics, popular culture, and women's studies.
