There are many artists who create their work from the perspective of feminism, or “the radical notion that women are human beings” (to quote feminist scholar¬†Cheris Kramarae).

From Wikipedia: Feminist art, which grew out of the of the late 1960s and 1970s, criticized the gender ideals of the early 20th century as well as the art-history canon, using art to create a dialogue between the viewer and the artwork through a feminist lens. Rather than creating artwork for the visual pleasure of the viewer, feminist art aimed to make the viewer question the social and political norms of society in the hopes that it would inspire change towards what feminism is all about Рequality. The media used ranged from traditional art forms Рsuch as painting Рto non-traditional methods such as performance art, conceptual art, body art, craftivism, video, film, as well as fiber art. Feminist art served as an innovative driving force towards expanding the definition of art through the incorporation of new media and a new perspective.[1][2]
