In this, Women’s History Month, The National Museum of Women in the Arts is challenging people to name 5 women artists in an attempt to highlight a lack of awareness of female artists. This national campaign calls attention to the fact that women have not been treated equally in the art world, and today they remain dramatically underrepresented and undervalued in museums and galleries. The Visual Collections Team here at Rylands felt challenged by the movement and decided to get involved. In the coming week we will be naming and sharing details of #5WomenArtists from our Photographic Collections.
We’re encouraging you to have a go and ‘Name 5 Women Artists’!
