Those who do not move, do not notice their chains*

Like so many of the left-wing social rights movements, women’s suffrage was a large-scale propaganda campaign that relied heavily on grass-roots processions, demonstrations, and the distribution of printed material. Banners were used extensively to convey its messages; symbols and slogans were embroidered, stencilled or appliquéd onto fabric or canvas, creating an early counter-culture meeting point between craft and politics. This tour will examine the many social, political, and revolutionary references Girard uses in her whimsical and twisted take on the highly politicized space of the banner.
