Judy Chicago is an American feminist writer and artist known for her large collaborative artwork which explores the role of women in culture and history. Born as Judith Cohen in Chicago, Illinois, she changed her name after the death of her father and her first husband, choosing to stray from the ideology of male-dominant naming conventions.

Chicago’s work incorporates skills stereotypically identified with women, such as needlework, counteracted with stereotypical male skills such as pyrotechnics and welding. Learn more »
