Episode 3

In the final programme of the series, Professor Amanda Vickery explores the explosion of creative opportunities for women as the 20th Century dawned.

Travelling from London and Paris to the remote Swedish countryside and the bleak desert landscape of New Mexico; this was a time where western women were demanding ever increasing roles across society and female artists found the strength to push the boundaries of art even further.
