(Anti)SUFFRAGE, curated by Theo Tyson, presented thirteen rare books, broadsides, paintings, photographs, and other items from the Boston Athenӕum’s special collections. In celebration and commemoration of PRIDE month, Polly Thayer Starr Fellow in American Art and Culture Theo Tyson will explore how Victorian ideas of womanhood - including sexuality and heteronormative, patriarchal standards - played a key role in opponents' arguments against suffrage. She will look at nineteenth century photographs of renowned suffragists with their partners and anti-suffrage propaganda that touted engendered constructs; both ultimately contributing to redesigning women’s roles and responsibilities for generations and centuries to come.
This event is free and open to the public.
