Women Art Revolution annotates the evolution of the Feminist Art Movement in the United States from the personal perspective of feminist artist and film director Lynn Hershman Leeson. Through interviews, art, and rarely seen archival films and images, Women Art Revolution combines documentary and memoir to boldly illustrate how this Movement, driven by personal and political imperatives of social justice and civil rights, radically transformed the art and culture of our times.
