Re: Women in history and an examination of gender norms:

The Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism also produced a report on females in the music industry (http://assets.uscannenberg.org/docs/aii-inclusion-recording-studio-2019.pdf). According to this report on average per year over the seven years from 2012 to 2018, 21.7% of artists were wome...

Re: Women in history and an examination of gender norms:

Here are two films that are not only about women, but are dominated by female characters. The first is Stage Door (1937) which was nominated for Best Picture in 1938. The female characters include: Terry Randall, played by Katharine Hepburn b. 1907; Jean Maitland, played by Ginger Rogers b. 1911, my...

Re: Women in history and an examination of gender norms:

Emigma, I was looking through the comments from people who have added to this thread and I realized I didn’t pay full attention to your point that: “Artists and art becoming part of the canon in the art world is dictated less by the arrival of new geniuses and more by who champions who than we'd lik...

Re: Women in history and an examination of gender norms:

Seemingly Fine Arts are not the only area where female artists are underrepresented. From what I see this is also the case for Movies, Music and Literature. According to a report by the Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism on average per year over the eleven years 2007 to 2017 only 30.7...

Re: Women in history and an examination of gender norms:

Enigma after you asked me who my favorite artists were and when I saw that your profile said you were “Into art” I was hoping you would add to this topic. Of the six artists you linked to I only knew of two – Rosa Bonheur and Mary Cassatt – so I now know of four more female artists than I did. So th...

Re: Women in history and an examination of gender norms:

Not Everything Changes: Back in the 1980s a group of female artists, calling themselves the Gorilla Girls , put out a poster which asked the question “Do women have to be naked to get into the Met. Museum?” and followed with the explanation that “Less than 5% of the artists in the Modern Art Sectio...

Re: Women in history and an examination of gender norms:

Part Three Starting in 1937 Gallup Polls asked people in the US whether they would vote for a woman for President. In 1937 only one third said they would, in 1949 the percentage saying yes was equal as to the percentage saying no and in 2015, 92% said they would vote for a woman. That was actually d...

Re: Women in history and an examination of gender norms:

Sonic, by social or cultural inertia I mean that people have to become accustomed and familiar to new concepts before they are willing to accept them. As with Melsbells I thank you for your polite comment and I feel it is important for viewers to read different opinion and I certainly don’t feel I a...

Re: Women in history and an examination of gender norms:

Part Two: The New Jersey (USA) constitution of 1776 stated that “all inhabitants of this colony, of full age, who are worth fifty pounds . . .” were allowed to vote. Since it stated “all inhabitants” it meant that women and non-whites who met the other requirements could vote. Now, because of the re...

Re: Women in history and an examination of gender norms:

Melsbells, thank you for your polite and informative comment, I feel it is important for viewers to read different opinions and I certainly don’t feel I am always correct. I would not say that “history is a linear progression,” but it seems to me that it tends in a particular direction, however at d...

Women in history and an examination of gender norms:

It seems to me that most historical changes occur gradually in a step by step manner. This suggests what can be called cultural or social inertia. That is that people have to become accustomed and familiar to new concepts before they are willing to accept them. Below I give an example of this in reg...

Re: Hi . . .

Enigma thanks for the welcome. Who’s my favorite artist? I’m thinking in terms of painting, sculptures and photographs. To start with I would say Georgia O’Keeffe. She was a great experimenter, starting off with pure abstractions then going on to her “magnified” Flowers which I see as an extension o...
