There are not many films that are able to show the development of a true revolution and Women Art Revolution is one of them. It shows how feminism affected women's art and how art affected feminism. The art and the interviews that make up this extraordinary film are a history -- or a herstory -- of our time. Most of the women in the film you haven't heard of, but their work has changed our culture and I thank them for it.
