Reassesses the role of women in public art, with a particular focus on the lack of female memorials around the world.-- "Publishers Weekly"
This powerful book asks why women have been so underrepresented in public memorials and how distortion and debasement have played a part in how women have been remembered. Breaking the Bronze Ceiling makes a strong case for how cultural memory--and its mismanagement--have been controlling factors in the treatment of women in public art. The range of approaches makes the chapters lively and thought-provoking.---Susan G. Solomon
