Letter received by the journal in reference to a previous article/review by Clare Rendell
Title: Framing Feminism
Letter written by Kate Bush

Extract from the letter: “Clare Rendell’s article on Framing Feminism (Issue 22) made a series of provocative comments to which I hope I may be allowed to respond. I would first like to raise two points. First, that while acknowledging Griselda Pollock’s important contributions to an emergent feminist art history, she is cast in the role of prescriptive, autocratic therorist. Second, the implications of Lubaina Himid’s ultra-critical stance at the ICA discussion are not considered.”
