This chapter examines the relationship between the women’s suffrage movement and popular print culture in the United States from the nineteenth century to the turn of the twentieth century. In particular, it considers the status of oratory as the privileged sign of political agency and how suffrage campaigners resorted to a variety of print form such as periodicals, pamphlets, creative literature, and print cultural publicity stunts to influence government policy and expand women’s role in the public sphere.

Keywords:   women’s suffrage movement, popular print culture, United States, oratory, political agency, periodicals, pamphlets, creative literature, publicity stunts, government policy
