Judy Chicago
Judy Chicago literally defined feminist art. As an arts educator in California during the 1970s, she developed the first Feminist Art Program. Her magnum opus The Dinner Party (1974-79), now on permanent display at the Brooklyn Museum, is considered an essential work of feminist art. Born in 1939, she’s still going strong: In 2018, she was named one of Time magazine’s 100 Most Influential People.
