This paper discusses how, because women have always been an integral part of society, their role has been depicted in artwork from the very first sculptures and cave paintings. Not surprising, the way that they have been delineated through art has depended on their changing responsibilities. Also, when women create the art pieces instead of their male counterparts, differences are recognized. The paper compares and contrasts this status within several different cultures such as ancient Greek Egyptian and Minoan cultures. The paper concludes that in most cases, except for the Minoan culture, the women's status continued to decline as the culture became more structured and urban. Except for the earliest times, therefore, women have had a subservient role. This has not only been in Western society, but Eastern cultures as well.
