Quick. Name 5 Women Artists

  1. diane arbus
  2. frida kahlo
  3. mary cassatt
  4. fay jones
  5. dorothea lang
  6. alice neel
Those are the artists that popped up for me, the top three sprung from my earliest exposures to women artists. No georgia o'keeffe. no nan goldin. no barbara kruger. I had just read about Dorothea Lang so that's why she's in there.

From the film, Who Does She Think She Is? 70-80% of visual art students are female, but 80% of the artists in galleries and museums are male.
