Wentworth Professor Discusses Women’s Voting Rights at Pennsylvania College
January 31, 2020
Allison Lange, assistant professor in the Department of Humanities and Social Sciences, presented “Images and the Fight for Women’s Voting Rights in the United States” to students at Muhlenberg College in Allentown, Penn. on Jan. 23.
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.

Lange appeared last year in the PBS program The State of Equality.
