In seeking recognition as artists in their own right, women have had to challenge conventions, steel themselves for confrontation and be unafraid to court danger. Their work, as a result, has often been groundbreaking, defiant and even subversive. This study looks at a selection of more than 60 artists, from the Renaissance to the present - among them Mary Cassatt, Frida Kahlo and Louise Bourgeois - who, in their determination to present a woman's point of view, have shaken up the art world.
