An entertaining and revelatory 'secret history' of feminist art,!Women Art Revolution deftly illuminates the under-explored movement through conversations, observations, archival footage, and works of visionary artists, historians, curators, and critics. Starting from its roots in the 1960s antiwar and civil rights protests, the film details developments in women's art through the 1970s and explores how the pioneering artists created the most significant art movement of the late 20th century.

Some interesting info and interviews (some crucial), but lacking in overall contextual development, so feels disjointed and confusing.

This film is a vital and important herstorical document. Although I can't help but wonder if it will 'read' with a younger generation,.. so unaware about the realities of the recent past ?!? I wish there had been more footage of the actual artwork & of the performance art,.. and more coverage about the 'density' of the sexist backlash. (Kev's PICkS: ...for an illuminating 'follow-up', see "Iron Jawed Angels",.. about the hostility towards womens' suffrage.)

This movie was entertaining and interesting but not one of my favorite for this year. “Not too bad---good performance”. "I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way.”

We need a similar documentary on Canadian feminist artists. How fortunate to view interviews with American feminists who challenged the US art industry to become inclusive rather than exclusively male.
