Lynn Hershman Leeson’s !Women Art Revolution (2010) is an 83-minute documentary that draws from hundreds of hours of intimate interviews conducted by Leeson with artists such as Harmony Hammond, Suzanne Lacy, Howardena Pindell, Faith Ringgold, Carolee Schneemann, and Cecilia Vicuña, curators Lucy Lippard, Lowery Stokes Sims, Marcia Tucker, and critic B. Ruby Rich, who recount their fight to break down the barriers facing women in the art world and society. 

Lynn Hershman Leeson (b. 1941, USA) is a celebrated artist and filmmaker internationally renowned for her pioneering use of new technologies to explore key social issues. Her prolific body of work spans over four decades: from her early conceptual and performance works to her more recent works that intersect the field of science to explore themes of identity, privacy, surveillance, and the complex relationship between humans and technology, and the real and the virtual world.
