Doing Feminism

Women's Art and Feminist Criticism in Australia

Anne Marsh
A bold and strikingly illustrated record of women's art and feminism in Australia
Doing Feminism represents over 220 artists and groups with 370 colour illustrations punctuated by extracts from artists' statements, curatorial writing and critique.

This extraordinary work presents one of the most comprehensive collections of material ever compiled on women and the arts in Australia. Marsh guides the reader through the struggles, contestations and achievements of women and feminism in the visual arts and argues that this is the doing of feminism with all its differences. It will become essential reading for years to come.
