AJHA Panel in Little Rock: From Pant(aloon)s to Pussy Hats: Feminist Dress as Media Spectacle
October 14, 2017 –
Moderator: Erika Pribanic-Smith (Texas-Arlington)
This panel examines ways that women have historically employed articles of clothing and manners of grooming as symbols in feminist campaigns for social change. Because these campaigns often employed media spectacle, their symbolism is of interest to media historians. Examining 19th-century Dress Reform, early 20th-century suffrage garb, hairstyles across several eras, pants in the 1970s, and finally 21st-century “pussy hats,” panelists will discuss themes such as the disruption of gendered expectations (i.e. pants as naturally “male”), the use of traditionally feminine skills (sewing and knitting) to undermine and reframe symbolic oppression, feminist use of media and the news media’s treatment of them.
Moderator: Erika Pribanic-Smith, University of Texas-Arlington

Parting shots of: the book launch events of Sept. 1 in East Hampton; Sept. 11 in NYC and Sept. 14 in Cambridge Mass. I’ve got comment and a video (expected soon) of the Sept. 28 event with Angela P. Dodson at the NY Society Library I spoke at the NY Genealogical & Biographical Society Fall Luncheon on Oct. 10 to an audience in which men were very well represented. Oct. 14, I presented on a panel at the AJHA Convention, Little Rock, Ark., on ‘When the Women of Suffrage Got Its Makeover On.” Here’s a post about the entire panel, which featured Jane Marcellus, Caryl Cooper, Tracy Lucht for Kimberly Wilmot Voss, and Erika Pribanic-Smith as moderator. For the Tom Twomey Lecture in Local History, which I hosted on Oct. 19 at the East Hampton Library, there is a Facebook Live recording featuring Judith Hope, the moderator, and presenters Antonia Petrash and Arlene Hinkemeyer.
