Summary 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.
