Feminist analysis has shown how female images in art and advertising reveal society’s attitudes, conscious and unconscious, towards women. This book provides a much-needed historical context for today’s debates. It opens our eyes to the numbers of female figures that surround us, on stamps, on coins, standing guard over banks and courts of justice. Acclaimed historian Marina Warner’s insights lead naturally into an exploration of the nature of the feminine itself. Why should Truth be a woman? or Nature? or Justice? or Liberty? Warner sets out to breathe some life into the army of petrified personages that litters western cityscapes. Her range of reference on female symbolism is enormous. Illustrations.
