No new research on suffrage and the media would be complete without attention to the anti-suffragists, which Teri Finneman (University of Kansas) provides with her work on local press coverage of the antis in the critical year of 1917, when their efforts neared defeat. Through the use of textual analysis and framing, and social movement theory, Finneman’s essay enhances the literature on press portrayals of counter-movements. Listen to Dr. Finneman talk about her research in this episode of the Journalism History podcast.
