feminist art

Quick Reference

The production of overtly feminist artworks dates from the late 1960s onwards. It involved a whole range of issues including a re-examination of history from a feminist viewpoint, a reversal of the historical bias against crafts as opposed to high art, and the creation of women's art groups, institutions, and galleries.
