About the book
Art and Feminism' is a must-have resource for those interested in contemporary art, art history, and feminist and gender studies.

The book features the work of 150 artists such as Louise Bourgeois, Paula Rego, Roni Horn, and Orlan.

Art and Feminism is unique in the way it juxtaposes artists, theories and artistic practices, not usually discussed together.

The sections are divided thematically, with section headings such as identity crises, corporeality, personalizing the political and femmes de siecle suggesting the breadth of studies and movements examined in the book.

Art and Feminism is a resource unparalleled in the study of feminist art, for all those with an interest in art, or the feminist movement.
