The visit kicked off Muhlenberg’s history lecture series, “A Century of Struggle: Women’s Rights Before and After Suffrage.”
Lange displayed political cartoons and other illustrations, as well as portraits to discuss the often indecorous way women have been portrayed in media over the years. She also discussed how certain gender roles were established, as well as the fear and backlash that followed the campaign for equality.
