VERMILLION, S.D. -- College professor Teri Finneman will speak next week at the University of South Dakota about her book, “Press Portrayals of Women Politicians, 1870s-2000s: From ‘Lunatic’ Woodhull to ‘Polarizing’ Palin.” It was delayed a week because of Wednesday’s storm.
With the United States within reach of electing its first female president because of Democrat Hillary Clinton's success so far, Finneman will examine the media experiences of women political pioneers who helped pave the way to the breaking of the glass ceiling.
Finneman, an assistant professor of Journalism & Mass Communications at South Dakota State University, will speak at 4 p.m., Wednesday, March 30 at the Al Neuharth Media Center. The presentation is sponsored by USD history, political science and women and gender studies.
