These works represent, among other things, the“dance of life”and how we must learn it as a balanced duet. Issues of inequity can only be addressed by all working together. Women alone cannot confront ingrained sexism; men must be equally involved. These works are ones of hope, of the future in a post #MeToo era, where there is no longer income inequity in workplace or labor inequity at home; where we need neither a museum of women’s art because art by women in traditional museums will be shown as much as art by men, nor a woman’s history month because they will be as celebrated as their male counterparts. Much progress has been made since my childhood, but we have not reached that parity. This future demands much work now, from both sides, with the aim of dancing to the same rhythm of ideas.
