Contrasting with the ferment of the times, the film is orderly and rather subdued, but it's an excellent introduction to a movement that produced artists as diverse as Yoko Ono, Cindy Sherman, and Miranda July.

By the end of the film, you'll be searching out the work of Judy Chicago, Sheila de Bretteville, Faith Ringgold, Miranda July and the Guerrilla Girls, among many others.

It's both enlightening and a bit messy, but then history is always messy.

An astute mix of interviews with artists, critics and experts on the movement.

It's affecting, and the tone, which is polemical, is also rueful and realistic.

We weren't all there watching the struggle take place, and a more clearly stated thesis or a simple delineation of cause and effect could have gone a long way.

An intimate, insider portrait of the most influential art movement of the late 20th century.

...a real trip down memory lane for people involved in the early feminist movement in the United States (the soundtrack alone will push your nostalgia button), and a great resource for teaching...

May 14, 2012 Full Review Source: Playback:stl

A compelling story emerges of a feminist art movement inspired by the civil rights and anti-war movements, its loosely organized members striving for equality and recognition through guerrilla protest tactics that were in themselves art.

This doc is real gem -- as relevant to the feminist art movement as Exit Through the Gift Shop was for street art, albeit less flashy in its composition.

An important film about the women's art scene which has never really received its due.

What the director succeeds in doing is constructing a powerful educational tool that incorporates primary documents and oral histories of the women who made the movement, giving them space to finally have their voices heard.

October 26, 2011 Full Review Source: PopMatters

[The] footage -- some 125 hours of it -- became perhaps the only known record of an entire movement of art that was otherwise unseen and undocumented.

Has meaningful things to say about race, class, power, sexuality, and economics as well.

These women deserve to have their voices heard, and this film finally lets them have their say.

Self-described "patchy" documentary about a determined movement of female artists to gain visibility in a male-dominated world pummels with scores of talking heads and archival material.

Lynn Hershman Leeson introduces us only superficially to her dozens of pioneering friends.

Audience Reviews for !Women Art Revolution

A fabulous introduction to a number of female artists that I had never been exposed to. It was a tremendous educational opportunity as well as a great film. I am glad that I had the opportunity to learn.
