Where are the works of the great women artists? Why are there so few represented in museums? In this provocative program, respected artists such as Doris McCarthy, Judy Chicago, Joyce Weiland, and Jane Ash Poitras, in combination with curators, art historians, and The Guerrilla Girls, the "terrorists" of the art world, discuss the dearth of womenÂ’s artwork in major galleries and examine the poignant social history of women in the fine artsÂ—a story of suppression, marginalization, and omission. The efforts of the National Museum of Women in the Arts is spotlighted to balance that one sided pictures of artist achievements.
