This book accompanied an exhibition that opened at the National Arts Festival in 2004. It considers work by a range of women artists who have represented themselves and their bodies in their work.
The book is accompanied by an education supplement written by Philippa Hobbs. The educational supplement has been designed as a guide for teachers and folds out into a poster format for use in the classroom. The supplement is divided into five separate worksheets illustrated with historical artworks under discussion, biographies on important artists and their works, and fact files which address key concepts and ideas. Guidelines for questions and discussions are included along with lists of related books.
