Women and Public Space in European Visual Culture, 1789-1914

Art historian Heather Jensen joins host Marcus Smith today to discuss a book she just co-edited entitled "Women, Femininity, and Public Space in European Visual Culture, 1789-1914."  The book argues that women had far more influence and power in the 1800s in Europe than most people now realize, though that influence was generally informal and outside of traditional governmental legislative power.

Similar to the pattern in other areas of American history, it was a long, hard road for women to attain equality in law schools and the practice of law.  A recent documentary looks at the lives and careers of many of the first 100 women lawyers in Utah.  Today, host Marcus Smith interviews #100 on that list, Professor Jane Wise of the J. Reuben Clark Law School at Brigham Young University.   —Original airdate: 7/30/2014 08:00 PM
