The Guardian: The Best US Exhibitions for Women's History Month 2020

March 2, 2020

In 1979, a group of women in Santa Rosa marched in a DIY parade holding up a banner that read “Sonoma County Celebrates Women’s History Week”. No one could have foretold that this grassroots initiative, founded in 1978, would become the foundation of a worldwide Women’s History Month.

In the years that followed, the National Women’s History Project was born, just as women’s history made its way into school curriculums across the country. In the 1980s, President Jimmy Carter recognized Women’s History Week, and Bill Clinton recognized Women’s History Month in 1995. This year, there are numerous exhibits across the US that celebrate great female artists. Here are eight of them.

February 24, 2020

Where are all the great women fashion photographers? Ahead of women’s history month in March, one exhibition is looking at two key figures of the female gaze in fashion. Opening March 5, the Staley Wise Gallery in New York features two trailblazing women who broke ground in fashion photography; 2 Women of Style is the name of this two-woman exhibit showcasing the works of Louise Dahl-Wolfe; who shot for Harper’s Bazaar in the 1930s, and Stephanie Pfriender Stylander; a New York photographer who shot Kate Moss in 1991, when she was just 17. Granted, there are countless women fashion photographers who changed the game, from Regina Lelang to Deborah Turbeville and more recently, Ellen von Unwerth. Here, Pfriender Stylander shares her personal history as a photographer, her triumphs, challenges and what she respects most about actors.
