A feminist visual manifesto. Women in the Picture is a fierce challenge to the ways we depict, and are taught to see, women’s bodies. Plunging into the realms of art history, popular visual culture and advertising, McCormack opens our eyes to how archetypal depictions of women – as mothers, daughtersm Venuses, whore or ‘nasty women’ – have encourgaed us to objectidy and subjegate, and to normalise violence towards them. Taking in classic works of art by the likes of Titian and Picasso, as well as contemporary representations of women in everything from Hollywood films to perfume advertisements to censored Instagram images, we’ll reconsider the context in which images of women have been produced, displayed adn reproduced – and the appeal to ‘beauty’ that has stopped us from seeing the misogyny of some fo the world’s ‘greatest’ artists and public figures. It’s time to learn the new ways of seeing.
