Suffragettes to she-devils: women's liberation and beyond
Not a history book, but a compilation of sparkling, hard-hitting graphics on the international women's movement drawn from the fine arts, fashion, and advertising to comics, broadsheets, and cyberart. Liz McQuiston's vivid text and selections center on how design furthered campaigns exalting or denigrating a woman's place in the world.Biting humor and anger crop up throughout. An automaker's billboard boasting "If it were a lady it would get its bottom pinched" draws the memorable spray-painted response: "If this lady was a car, she'd run you down." Voting rights, abuse, girl power, abortion, and parity are a few of the subjects touched on in this wide-ranging, freewheeling book on design and propaganda.
