AAUW Outlook Winter 2016: Claiming Creative Space: Women in the Arts

Read now text/html; charset=utf-8 — 55 KB

When you think of women in the arts, are the women on the canvas or holding the brushes? We don’t typically hear women’s points of view in our culture — and that’s especially true for women of color and in the mediums that get the most critical respect. This issue of Outlook explores the history of women’s exclusion from fields such as music and art, but it also addresses the modern challenges and successes we’re seeing in filmmaking, ballet, and journalism.
