Current readings of Judy Chicago’s growth as a woman artist, her dialogue notes the struggles conditioned by gender roles further suppressing her work, pushing herself to create the ‘woman’s programme’ to accommodate Chicago’s own practice whilst teaching other criticised females. An empowering insight into the hardships endured prior to present day, prompting personal morale to follow suite without suppressing myself to the confines of gender.

‘I also could no longer accept denying my experiences as a woman in order to be considered a “serious” artist, especially if my stature was going to be diminished anyway by the male-dominated community.’  (Chicago, 2006:66)
