This paper examines the political origins of feminist art in the 1960's and addresses the social climate that brought on the birth of the art movement. It describes the divisive nature of the feminist versus universal art debate. The paper argues that the civil rights movement in companion with feminist art has ceased to be a "movement". In addition, the paper describes art works of well know female artists of this era.

From the Paper:

"Feminist art as a named movement evolved in the context of the late 1960's early 1970's political climate. The movement contextually cannot be separated from larger civil rights movements and specifically those relating to women; like the sexual revolution, the women's liberation movement, and the formation and growth of groups like the National Organization for Women. Strictly speaking there can be no real separation of the feminist art movement from the civil rights movements in its context because so much of art of the era acted as the voice and vision of the messages of the movements as a whole. Though there are of coarse exceptions to this rule, art as a whole during this period was a demonstrative agent for social change and feminist art is definitely included in that context."
