A journalism historian, Finneman will discuss the history of the women’s suffrage movement, why it took decades to get the right to vote and why this story isn’t over yet. Author of “Press Portrayals of Women Politicians, 1870s-2000s, which was named a 2016 finalist for the Frank Luther Mott-Kappa Tau Alpha book award, she has been recognized for her teaching and writing abilities with several awards.
Finneman’s research focuses on news coverage of U.S. first ladies and women politicians, as well as the U.S. suffrage movement.
