This touched me so deeply - as a creative woman myself currently in the throes of a poverty-driven depression . . . I find I cannot concentrate on my next writing project. Most of my energy these days goes toward the "art" of survival (and I find I am brilliant at this) - finding the money for shelter, food and transportation. Having lost my job this summer because of one man's corporate consciousness, I know it is my responsibility to remain faithful to all of humankind no matter what. Frida lives on in me as, despite the chaos of the outside world, I know I shall break free to create something beautiful and meaningful in the future. Thank you, Zoe.

It is a loss to think of all the creations of women that have been lost or supressed. Sadder still that most men are never apologetic for that. Personally I think the Kahlo in a suit with short hair is quite beautiful and bold!
But as I am eternally the optimist I must also note that today there are venues that focus entirely on the works of women. to name a few check out The National Museum of Women in the Arts http://www.nmwa.org/(I recall a wonderful dinner event and evening there in 1993)
Also watch for the spring 2007 opening of the Elizabeth A Sackler Feminist Art Museum in Brooklyn http://www.brooklynmuseum.org/collections/eascfa.php
