In a world like today, one might not understand the detest Degas had for women in some of his works (women bathing) which were to be women in humiliating situations. Or some of Picasso's pieces, (unless you know his history with women).
These and other "masterpieces" are applauded for their medium, composition, color, while the underlining message seems to get absorbed innocently into our society. Judy Chicago brutally points these out and makes us face perhaps how art could have had played a negative part in women in society throughout history.

I did, however, need to remove the jacket cover from this book. I'm not sure it this was meant to be ironic, but it deffinately sparked the curiousity of my ten year old son...
