Women's Spaces

Project Summary

How are women influenced by the spaces that they are allowed to occupy? A group of students, led by English Professor Charlotte Sussman, will examine how the spaces and places women can inhabit have changed over time, and how such changes have affected women’s rights and opportunities. The team will analyze the visual representations of women depicted in magazines from the nineteenth to the twenty-first century through the Women’s Magazine Archive, considering how images about women influence the reality that women can both imagine and live. Using this data, the group will design and visualize a potential women’s space that can empower and support women to reach their highest potential.
