Women In Revolt! By Linsey Young

Produced to coincide with the show Women in Revolt! on show at Tate Britain until 7 APRIL 2024.

Across a wide variety of mediums including painting, drawing, sculpture, performance, film and photography, this extensive exhibition catalogue reflects on how women's needs were marginalised within mainstream culture. It reveals how artists used radical ideas and methods to confront issues that will resonate with contemporary audiences — from access to healthcare and class struggles to ecological disaster, racism and misogyny.

Featuring essays on feminist film distribution, the visibility of Black and South Asian women artists, Section 28 and the AIDS pandemic, Greenham Common and the peace movement, and the intersection of punk, feminism and art, Women in Revolt! celebrates the full diversity of what was a highly creative, politically engaged and determined community of women that paved the way for future generations and, ultimately, changed the face of British culture.

Edited by Linsey Young, Curator of Contemporary British Art at Tate.
