|Publication Year:||2017||Title:||The Face That Launched a Thousand Lawsuits|
|ISBN:||9780300214222||Author:||Jessica Lake (author)|
|A compelling account of how women shaped the common law right to privacy during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries Drawing on a wealth of original research, Jessica Lake documents how the advent of photography and cinema drove women-whose images were being taken and circulated without their consent-to court. There they championed the creation of new laws and laid the groundwork for America's commitment to privacy. Vivid and engagingly written, this powerful work will draw scholars and students from a range of fields, including law, women's history, the history of photography, and cinema and media studies.|
