Abstract or Description

Consultant Editor for this popular trade book which shows how the feminist movement, since its inception in the 19th century, has harnessed the power of images to transmit messages of social change. From highlighting the posters of the Suffrage Atelier, through the radical art of second wave feminist art movement, to recent emphases on global and intersectional responses to misogynist culture, this international survey traces the way feminist have shaped visual culture.

In three sections edited by the art historians and researchers Luci Gosling (suffrage movement), Amy Tobin (second wave) and Hilary Robinson (1990s - present), the book features more than 350 works of fine art, visual culture, and graphic activism—along with short essays examining the legacy of this radical legacy.

With forewords by Xabier Arakistain (Director del Centro Cultural Montehermoso Kulturunea, Bilbao, Spain) and Maria Balshaw (Director, Tate, UK).
