Historical images conveyed ideas about gender, politics, and power and laid the foundations for modern ones. Suffragists worked within established visual norms for representing political power, long coded as masculine. Since then, each generation of feminists seems to reject the political styles of their predecessors to counter the still popular idea that feminists are serious, sexless, manhating, harridans. Photographs and posters from the Women’s March as well as images of current leading women demonstrate new shifts in gendered pictures. Visual debates about gender and politics continue today.
