"The sheer heft of lavishly produced images will be indispensable to scholars, critics, and artists."Art Monthly

Discover a rich showcase of the vibrant feminist aesthetic over the last 150 years: Once again, women are on the march. And since its inception in the 19th century, the Women's Movement has harnessed the power of images to transmit messages of social change and equality to the world.

• Features more than 350 works of art, illustration, photography, performance, and graphic design along with essays examining the legacy of the radical canon
• Highlights posters of the Suffrage Atelier, through the radical art of Judy Chicago and Carrie Mae Weems, to the cutting-edge work of Sethembile Msezane and Andrea Bowers
• Broken into three sections: Suffrage and Beyond 1857-1949; Defining Feminism 1960-1988; and Redefining Feminism 1989-Present
