Where are all the Great Female Artisits?

Before the 60s & 70s, museums, like professors bookshelves, were filled with a canon that excluded women. So women took to the streets to demand greater representation:

In this month’s commenmorative issue of Ms. Magazine, I read the statistic that the number of artists represented in museums used to be 12% and now it’s 27%.

Still think that feminism is no longer neccesary?
