A People’s Art History excerpt: Banners Designed to Break a President

fig-11.2

Here is an excerpt from the book that I posted on the Justseeds blog that details the woman’s suffrage movement in the late 1910s and their use of banners. More over, the writing details the National Woman’s Party’s (NWP) use of civil disobedience and banners to escalate the conflict and force the federal government to act – often in repressive ways that created more press for the movement.
