There is also a Youtube Channel (called !War) completely dedicated to this project (http://www.youtube.com/user/WomenArtRevolution)

“For over forty years, Director Lynn Hershman Leeson has collected hundreds of hours of interviews with visionary artists, historians, curators and critics who shaped the beliefs and values of the Feminist Art Movement and reveal previously undocumented strategies used to politicize female artists and integrate women into art structures...”

The film covers all types of artists and has a major online presence. It will be completed for viewing in Fall 2010.

Leeson herself is an award-winning interactive media artist and the Chair of the Film Department at the San Francisco Art Institute and Emeritus Professor at the University of California.
