Disappointing that Art and feminism seems to have morphed into little more than body awareness. Most interesting inclusions stem from the '70s and information here shows a great deal of repetition from other books of this genre. These mentioned artists have real merit, but an investigation into contemporary art and feminism would have been welcome as a counterpoint. The more current examples of art and artists require more discussion as the concept of feminism in the here and now is vastly removed from that of the 70s. Interviews with the artists required.

If you are interested in contemporary Feminist art then this book is a like a bible! It will be useful to both students of history of art and fine art but also looks great on the coffee table! The illustrations and critical appraisals are excellent and provide a good foundation for further study and research into the growth of feminist art in the twentieth century and how this links with contemporary movements.

This book is ideal if you are studying art or art history, I would recommend this book to anyone doing level two and level three art history courses with The Open University as the material in the book ties in with the course materials. I bought this book to further my knowledge of art and feminism as I studied a lot of the artists when I did my Open University degree in Art History I wish this book had been available when I was studying it would have been extremely useful offering further insights into the artists that I had to study for example artists like Judy Chicago, Eva Hesse, Carolee Schneemann, Martha Rosler, Ana Mendieta, Cindy Sherman and Linda Benglis to name but a few. Even if your not doing a degree buy the book anyway and expand your knowledge of art.

This book was invaluable for writing my dissertation on feminist art as it taught me a lot about the feminist art movement and quashed any preconceptions I had about feminism. It introduced me to many women artists I had not heard of and told me more about the ones I was already familiar with. Lovely full colour pictures and lots of detail on the works included. I had kept borrowing the book from the college library and in the end decided to buy my own copy for my own library even though I had nearly finished my essay. Only one small criticism was that this new published edition does not have all of the essays at the back, that the original hardbook copy had but I suppose that is reflected in the price. A great book for any art lover even if you are not into feminst art.

I bought this book for some research I am doing for my own project. I found it to be the best book that has an extensive overview of the artistic movement, that includes performance, installation, photography, moving image, painting and watercolour. The writing is also clear, and not too 'thick' as some of these types of books can be. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because while the editor has an excellent knowledge of feminist art movements up until it seems 1989, somewhat thereafter, the art changes substantially in the 1990'2 onwards and there is little analysis of this type of change. Otherwise, it is an excellent book and am so glad I bought it. I will be referencing it regularly.
