Suffragettes to She-Devils by Guido Costa
Book DescriptionThe fight for women's rights has been one of the great struggles of the last century, and its graphic expression has been central to this battle. Suffragettes to She-Devils captures the excitement of revolutionary campaigns and movements, from the vibrant visual identity of the militant Suffragettes, through the humour and sniping of the cartoons of 1960s Women's Lib, to the virtual-reality explorations of end-of-the-century cyberfeminists. It explores the developing role of graphics and related media in the struggle for women's liberation. This book covers a wide and international range of issues including women and war work; 1950's consumerism; women's rights in the workplace; gay rights and gay pride; and questions of identity, race, violence, health and welfare. An enormous variety of posters, billboards, publications, logos, artworks and computer graphics are illustrated, reflecting the ways in which women of all ages and cultures have created avenues for communication and fostered social change through graphic design.
