My understanding of sexual violence was informed by anthropological perspectives on the issue as well as my own previous research. Visual analysis of each image in the first eight volumes (373 images) of La Caricature, published between 1830 and 1834, produced both quantitative and qualitative data about the journal. In order to gain an understanding of statistical trends, I created a spreadsheet which includes information about the content of each caricature. The categories I was most interested in keeping track of include the setting of the image, the presence of women, whether these women were allegorical figures, and the presence of violence against women. This pagedisplays some of my quantitative data.
