The growing importance of visual culture is seen in many aspects of society - television, dance, film, fashion, painting, sculpture, installation and fine art - to name but a few. Feminist Visual Culture looks at the contribution of feminist theory and practice in these media and considers the place women have and the role that they play. Written by women working in the field of visual culture they draw on examples and situations from everyday life.

Reviews

An effective review of feminist interventions within the frame of art history over the last 30 years… this edited collection is exemplary in its reflection on the materials of feminist practitioners and their individual positioning in relation to art history.
This book is about visual culture, not just art, and the result is a really useful introductory book for students and teachers alike.
This collection of essays is a perfect example of just the kind of academic writing that can be of use to a far greater number of people than those within the academy.
