A Woman's Place
Over the past three centuries, one of the most profound changes in our society has been the movement of women toward a fuller inclusion in political life. With this change, women’s economic and social roles have also changed dramatically. None of this came with out conflict and debate. Is a “woman’s place” in the home, or wherever she wishes to be? Images in the collection offer window on to women’s roles in particular time periods, and the conflicts that arose around women’s voting rights and sexual liberation.
