About Allison K. Lange

Allison K. Lange is an Associate Professor of History at Wentworth Institute of Technology. She holds a PhD in History from Brandeis University.

Allison is a historian who explores the stories that images tell about the intersection of gender and power in US history. Her book Picturing Political Power: Images in the Women’s Suffrage Movement focuses on the ways that women’s voting rights activists and their opponents used images to define gender and power. She has written for The Atlantic, The Washington Post, and Imprint. She has also provided interviews for The New York Times, TIME magazine, USA TODAY, and podcasts like And Nothing Less and American Girls Podcast.

For the Nineteenth Amendment centennial, Allison served as a historian for the Women’s Suffrage Centennial Commission. She also curated exhibitions at the Massachusetts Historical Society and Harvard University’s Schlesinger Library as well as a website for Melinda Gates’s Pivotal Ventures called Truth Be Told: Stories of Black Women’s Fight for the Vote. Various institutions have supported her work, including the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and the Library of Congress.
