"The American Feminist Art Movement"
Emerging out of an era of social revolution, the American feminist art movement sought to change the world through art. In the 1960s and ’70s, feminist artists focused upon actions and images that were intended as interventions, confronting both the art-historical canon and the exclusion of women from representation in galleries and museums. They called for equality in professional opportunity through dialogue that valued the female perspective and challenged prejudicial gendered stereotypes. Feminist art changed the core of art by questioning what art is, as well as what it could and would be.
