“Refreshing Feminism by feminist artists of today, is expressed through a wide variety of media. New types of art have also been developed, some specifically to meet the needs of the new consciousness and to express its messages. Visual art is a vital part of any social rights struggle.” – Dorit Jordan Dotan
