The advent of the photographic and cinematic camera in the mid to late 19th century caused new harms to individuals (particularly women), which existing laws (copyright, defamation, trespass) were inadequate to address. This work demonstrates that women forged a 'right to privacy' in the United States by bringing lawsuits claiming control and ownership over filmed images (still and moving) of their faces, bodies and narratives.
