Women Art Revolution!
Lynn Hershman Leeson, 2010, 83 min.

An entertaining and revelatory “secret history” of feminist art, Women Art Revolution! deftly illuminates this movement through conversations, observations, archival footage, and works of visionary artists, historians, curators, and critics. Starting from its roots in 1960s antiwar and civil rights protests, the film details major developments in women’s art through the 1970s and explores how the tenacity and courage of these pioneering artists resulted in what is now widely regarded as the most significant art movement of the late 20th century.
