Virtual Event on ‘Images in the Fight for Women’s Votes’

The Boston Athenæum presents a virtual event called “Images in the Fight for Women’s Votes,” with historian Allison K. Lange, on Thursday, Aug. 27, at 6 p.m.

Over time, suffragists developed a national visual campaign to change ideas about gender and politics and win voting rights.
